“I’m actually not even all that hungry, so whatever you want is fine.”

“Well, I’ve been eating a lot of fried food. That’s all they eat down there.”

“That was exactly me a week ago. Eating when you’re traveling is…well, not good.”

“Yeah. So…vitamins. Vegetables. Healthy.”

“I have frozen mushroom broth.”

“Maybe greens? Let’s add greens.”

“Rice too.”


“I’ll be over soon.”

  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • Handful of mushrooms, cut into bite-sized pieces (we used baby bellas)
  • Thyme
  • 1 qt. mushroom broth
  • 2 handfuls of spinach, chopped
  • 1/2 c. cream
  • 1 c. cooked brown rice
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and onions, cook until fragrant and translucent. Add mushrooms, cook until tender.

Add thyme, mushroom broth, simmer for a bit before adding spinach. When spinach cooks down, add cream and cooked rice.

Serve with Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste.
