Green Rice w/ Pine Nuts

If this one isn't healthy enough for you, leave out the cheese. This is a recipe I took from the lid of a box of pine nuts and tuned up.


1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Pine Nuts
2 Tbsp Garlic Minced
2 Tbsp Basil Minced
3 Tbsp Red Bell Pepper Minced
1/2 Cup Green Onion
1/2 Cup Mushrooms Diced
1/4 Cup Sherry or White Wine
1/2 Cup of Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley
1/2 Cup Spinach Leaves Minced
3 Cup Cooked Long Grain Rice (Texmati)
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese.

Toast pine nuts over medium high heat.
Add onions and saute until transparent.
Add mushrooms and garlic. Saute until garlic is fragrant.
Add wine and simmer for two minutes.
Add basil, peppers, parsley and spinach. Cook until soft.
Add Rice, and stir frequently until hot (or until mixed if rice is recently cooked).
Remove from heat and add Parmesan cheese. Stir until mixed.
Serve hot.
