Green Rice


I remember watching Rachel Ray or someone make green rice one time. I thought this challenge would be a good excuse to actually make it. When I looked up the recipe, most of the ones I found didn't really sound good, or sounded like more than I wanted to do. So, I just made some regular long grain rice and added some spinach pesto.

Spinach pesto

2 cups spinach
1/2 lemon
1 garlic clove
handful of parm cheese
salt and pepper
toasted almonds
- mix in food processor. Drizzle in olive oil until desired consistancy.

I used most of this in 2 cups cooked rice. The rice turned out a nice green color and Mark said the liked it. The kids picked at it. I served it with orangy oatmeal chicken tenders.
