Preheat your oven to 180ºC. Cook your cup of rice. Steam your butternut and spinach until wilted.
Drain and squeeze juices out of the spinach, if you want.
Once the rice is done, mix it in with the spinach and butternut.
Mix the eggs, cream and cheeses together with a beater. Season to your tongue’s wish and heart’s detriment. Add this to the rice mix and mix some more. Mix, mix, mix…
Pour the unexpectedly runny ‘batter’ into a greased and lined (if you have baking paper, which I did not) baking pan.
Generously sprinkle the breadcrumbs on top and then pop it in the oven.
If you have leftover batter, pop it into a ramekin or five and bake that too.
Makes for pretty pictures. Bake for 30 minutes. Not longer, or it will be dry like stale rice crispies squares.
Trust me, I’ve made the mistakes for you.
Remove from oven and serve with a tomato, onion and cucumber salsa and a dollop of cream cheese.
