    Roosie's Note:

    "Jazz up plain old rice with the flavors of Greece. This main-dish casserole gets powerful antioxidents from the spinach and plenty of fiber from the brown rice." - From the Prevention Magazine book, "Natural Healing Guide 2002"

      For those with a wheat allergy, this is a solution, but only a partial. The taste, if cooked as directed, is hollow. It has none of the flair of spano and other greek dishes. Adding nutmeg, some lemon may help, that is if you want something other than a thin taste.Experiment, then post your results fo rthe rest of us.

      I liked the sound of this dish - I love brown rice, feta, spinach and olives, but for me it was too bland and a bit 'eggy' tasting. As suggested in other reviews, it needs garlic and maybe some herbs/spices and if I were to make it again I would put more feta and olives too.

      This was a delicious and easy to prepare recipe. I substituted fresh spinach for frozen and low fat feta for regular feta cheese. Very tasty and filling without being heavy. I can't wait to make it again.
