I have Sophie to thank for this one. Because of my pup’s sensitive stomach, I’ve been reduced to serving up people food – a combination of rice, chicken and green beans. (she loves it and it’s working like a charm) Anyway…

The other day (as I was making sensitive doggie food) I couldn’t find anything for lunch (for myself) except a bit of leftover lentil soup. I looked at the pot of plain rice. I looked at the soup. I remembered that we had fresh baby spinach…

Lightbulb moment.

I added a scoop of hot rice to the bowl, added a generous handful of torn spinach and then topped it all with reheated lentil soup. Stir to mix and the spinach wilts beautifully.

Whoa Nellie. It was so good I headed out for more spinach, lentil soup (I get Progresso 99% Fat Free) and brown rice. Your meal takes less than 10 minutes and even less if you have leftover rice.

  1. That looks yummy! I’ve been trying to incorporate more beans into my diet and have been eating a lot of spinach as well.

    I hope you are doing ok these days!

  2. Oh Sophie, what a sweetie. I love that you make her people food, I would do it too for our old dog Jack if I thought I could get all he needs into it. Do you have a certain recipe or guidelines that you could share? xo

  3. I am sure I would like that dish! And what I like too are your photos – they are really artful taken! Look at those clementine wedges on the spinach leaves – and your bowl goes in color with your meal!

  4. Ahh, sorry Sophie, I almost forgot you – you are the cutest dog lady, really! And you are sooooo pretty! 🙂
