Long Grain Wild Rice & Spinach

I have an evil tendency, but it’s for a good reason. Some of my hungry family insist they despise spinach and would never eat it. Yeah right! I say, if you can pass it off as parsley they will. This dish goes great as a side with Chicken or Fish.

  2. 1 Cup Chicken Stock (homemade or purchased)

When I was a kid I used to watch Popeye and of course got hooked on spinach for a year or so. When I realized spinach did not give me a Mr. World Body, I dumped it. Spinach UGH! But I rediscovered spinach in these past few years, and fresh spinach in many dishes is really good and tasty.
