Cheesy Spinach & Wild Rice Side Dish

Because I'm only 49 days into being a new mommy again, I'm still all about easy and quick meals. I made this dish to accompany our chicken and we fell in in love, I made it again the next day, it's yummy. This is a perfect addition to chicken, steak or fish. It's creamy, light and fresh. This recipe comes from Hingham, MA - another east coast dish that I love!


1 package of Uncle Bens Ready Rice - Long Grain and Wild Rice

4 oz. mushroom stems and pieces (drained)

1 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach

8 oz. cream cheese (cube the cream cheese)

3/4 cup of chopped onions

butter - 1 T

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

2 tsp of mustard

Add the spinach (you don't have to thaw or drain - just add frozen into pan), onions, nutmeg, butter and mustard in a large pan over medium to high heat.

Stir and cook until well mixed.

Add small chunks of the cream cheese to the pan now.

Stir until well blended.

In an 8 x 8 layer the rice and the mushrooms over it.

Now add the mix from the stove over the rice and mushrooms.

This is what it looks like before going into the oven for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
