Popeye Rice

Popeye Rice

Popeye Rice a tasty rice dish with spinach and caramelized onions.  I could eat rice everyday, but my family could never eat rice again and be just fine.  So I try to add ingredients  to create rice dishes with lots of flavor.  This one was a keeper, even my pickiest eater polished it off.   So I hope you give this a try, I think you’ll like it.

Popeye Rice


1 cup long grain white rice

1 14.5 oz can chicken broth

1 cup frozen spinach, thawed

1/2 cup diced onion

1/2 cup Swiss cheese, grated

3 tablespoons butter, divided

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash seasoning blend

In a medium size pot, melt 1 tablespoon butter and add rice.  Cook for 2 minutes, add chicken broth, salt and Mrs. Dash, bring to a boil, then turn down to simmer and cover.  Allow rice to cook about 15 minutes, undisturbed.  Meanwhile, In a small pan add remaining 2 tablespoons butter and  onion, stirring occasionally.  Cook onions until they just start to brown.  Squeeze excess water out of spinach and add to onions.  Cook 2 minutes stirring frequently.  When rice is cooked, stir in spinach and onion mixture and Swiss cheese, stirring until well combined.   Yummy goodness.
