Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Total Time: 60 to 65 minutes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium to large yellow or white onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 cup Arborio rice (naturally gluten-free)
- 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth (try my homemade vegetable broth recipe)
- 6 ounces spinach (I prefer organic and stems removed)
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (fresh grated is the best)
- 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch slices
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Here's how to make it:
- Heat olive oil, onion and salt on medium in an ovenproof medium pan for about 5 minutes. When onion is soft add rice and stir.
- Add all the spinach, nutmeg and the broth. Stir until the spinach is wilted and mixed into the rice and broth.
- Add the asparagus and half of the Parmesan. Mix thoroughly and smooth out the top.
- Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese on top.
- Place into a preheated 375-degree F oven. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
