Spinach, Feta, and Rice Casserole
The most flavorful, savory, hearty, creamy, nourishing, and comforting rice dish to add to your permanent “favorites” collection and make TODAY.
It’s seriously so good!
Bursting with fresh flavors thanks to the garlic and all the fresh herbs – no boring brown rice here!
Make this Spinach, Feta, and Rice Casserole to serve alongside your dinner tonight, or make this for meal prep throughout the week as it heats up extremely well.
➡️ Rachel’s tips:
Since there are only a few simple ingredients used here, I really recommend using the absolute freshest, highest quality ingredients you can get your hands on…it makes all the difference.
🇬🇷 Feta is Greece’s most famous cheese (and my favorite!)
Many say it’s also the healthiest.
🐐Usually made from sheep or goat milk (or a combo), Feta cheese is nutrient-rich.
Feta is said to be easier to digest and less allergenic and inflammatory than cheeses made from cow’s milk, which makes it a good option.
I hope you make a big batch this week to serve with dinner or to have on hand for future lunches and meal prep as I did!
My rice casserole stayed good in the fridge for a full 4 days before it was gone!
I purchase brown rice and quinoa in bulk (especially when they are on sale!)
This makes for super affordable meals and can REALLY help to stretch the family budget.
