1 cup brown rice
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained, chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Step 1: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat and toast rice and garlic, stirring frequently, for 30-60 seconds, or until lightly toasted.
Step 2: Add onion and water and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until rice has absorbed all water and is puffed up and fluffy.
Step 3: Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in cheese and spinach. Whisk flour into heavy cream, then stir into rice. Cook until mixture has thickened slightly, 5-7 minutes.
Step 4: Season with Rick's house seasoning.
