Spinach Rice

One evening my husband pointed out that our kids don't eat spinach much..this set my creative cells in motion, and I thought why not combine rice and some creamy spinach gravy with some sauteed veggies for the kids..The result was yummy, my family enjoyed spinach rice for dinner that night..Try this recipe for kids who are fussy about eating spinach, and if they still refuse to eat, well then, the popeye show might help !
