Another family favorite slightly adapted from our beat up old paperback copy of Recipes for a Small Planet (page 167). Except the kids don’t really agree.
3/4 c raw brown rice, cooked
1/2 c grated cheddar
1 lb fresh spinach, rolled up and sliced
2 eggs, beaten
2 T chopped fresh parsley
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
2 T wheat germ
extra virgin olive oil
Combine the cooked rice and cheese in a large bowl. Combine the eggs, parsley and spices in a small bowl and add to the rice and cheese mixture. Stir in the raw chopped spinach until well mixed. Pour into an oiled casserole dish. Top with wheat germ and splash (or spray) with olive oil.
Bake for 35-40 minutes — pop some sweet potatoes for a nice complimentary side!
