This is an interesting variation on the basic rice side dish from Taste of the Caribbean by Rosamund Grant. It is tasty all on its own, but unassuming enough to serve with a spicier dish to top it off. Note: The original recipe called for 2 1/2 cups basmati rice with 2 1/2 cups of water - I used that same amount of water with just a little over 1 cup of regular long grain rice and it was just right. Collard greens could also be used in place of the spinach.
