Meat-Free Monday: Spinach, Rice and Feta Pie

Image: Cheap, Healthy, Good.

Hearty, easy and yummy. Tick, tick and tick. Especially good if you have leftover rice from the night before.
You'll need:
2 tsp butter
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp plain flour
pinch salt
pinch pepper
1.5 cups milk
2 cups cooked rice (basmati or brown are both fine)
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
package frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
olive oil
parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 200C

2. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion for a few minutes.

3. Add flour, salt and pepper. Gradullay add the milk, stirring with a whisk until blended.

4. Simmer the mixture for a minute or until slightly thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in rice, spinach, feta, egg and egg whites. Combine well.

5. Pour mixture into greased pie dish and sprinkle with grated parmesan.

6. Cook for about 30-35 minutes.

This gives Sparky, Isy and myself enough for dinner plus lunch or dinner the next day, so it's super good value too. We usually have it with salad or some steamed veges. Enjoy!!!
