Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 10 ounces frozen spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry
  • 3 cups cooked Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice- Whole Grain Brown (about 1 ½ packages)
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided use
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, divided use
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup plain reduced fat Greek yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill or parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Cook the Uncle Ben’s rice according to directions on the pack. Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 9-inch pie pan or casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until softened, 5-6 minutes. Stir in the spinach, rice, and ¼ teaspoon salt and cook another couple of minutes until heated through. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the feta cheese and 3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese.
  • Whisk the eggs, yogurt, dill, ½ teaspoon salt and the pepper together in a medium bowl until smooth. Pour the mixture into the bowl with the spinach and rice. Stir to combine well.
  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared pie pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Bake in the oven until cooked through and golden brown on top, about 35 minutes. Let cool slightly, then cut into wedges and serve.
