Ingredients

2 1/2 cups light brown rice
5 cups low-fat, reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 leeks, white part only, washed and chopped
1 large celery stalk, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried basil
2 cups fresh spinach, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
2 (3 3/4 oz.) tins smoked oysters, drained and sliced
1/4 cup sliced toasted almonds
Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cook the rice: Rinse the rice in a fine sieve under cool running water for 1 minute. Heat the chicken broth in a saucepan to a boil. Slowly add the rice, bring to another boil, cover, and simmer for 50 minutes until rice is cooked through, draining any excess water. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, leeks, celery, and garlic, and sauté for 8 minutes. Add in the thyme and basil and sauté for 2 minutes. Add in the spinach and sauté for 1 minute, or until the spinach wilts.
  3. Add the vegetable mixture to the rice and mix well. Add in the smoked oysters, almonds, and salt and pepper and mix again.
