what you need
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or finely grated
  • 1/4 cup lightly roasted pine nuts or slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley, or 1/4 cup dried
  • Juice of 1 medium lemon (about 3 Tbsp.
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 large bunch spinach, collards, or chard, washed and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. dried dill weed
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
make it
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and sauté until onion is golden brown, around 10 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients except for rice and stir well. Turn heat to minimum, cover, and let simmer for about 5 minutes to combine flavors and allow greens to wilt. At this point you could add some chopped cooked meat. Add rice and mix well.

Turn the mixture into a greased casserole and bake until heated through, about 20 minutes.
May be frozen. Craisins are also good instead of raisins.
