1 large onion, diced

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

2 cups cooked basmati rice

3 bunches spinach, stems trimmed

2 teaspoons salt

Directions

  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onions until lightly browned. Reduce heat, add ground spices, and stir briefly. Add cooked rice. Cook just enough to heat rice through, stirring well to combine.
