Rice and Spinach with Lemon

"Love it! We have this almost weekly since first trying it, it goes very well with fish. We have substituted turnip greens for spinach and that was great as well. We also top with feta, yummy!"

- PJStephen

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup shallots; finely chopped
1 cup long-grain white rice
1-2/3 cups low-sodium chicken broth; (13 fl oz)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon garlic; chopped, (2 cloves)
3 bags spinach; tough stems discarded
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup slivered almonds; (optional)

Original recipe makes 6 Servings

Preparation

Heat butter in a 1- to 2-quart heavy saucepan over moderately low heat until foam subsides, then cook shallots, stirring occasionally, until beginning to turn golden (about 2 minutes). Add rice and cook, stirring constantly, until grains turn opaque (about 2 minutes). Reduce heat to low, then stir in broth and cook, covered, until liquid is absorbed and rice is just tender (about 15 minutes). Remove from heat and let stand, covered, until ready to use.

While rice is cooking, heat oil in a 6- to 8-quart heavy pot over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Then cook garlic, stirring constantly, until it begins to turn golden, (about 1 minute). Add all of spinach, salt, and pepper and cook, turning and stirring with tongs, until wilted and tender (about 3 minutes). Stir in 2 teaspoons lemon juice, then add rice and stir until just combined. Season with salt and pepper, then add up to 1 tablespoon lemon juice (to taste). Sprinkle almonds over the top (optional).

We tried this dish tonight and we loved it! We liked it because it was simple to make and went well with our beef curry. Many thanks
