  • 1 yellow onion, sliced thin
  • 3 tablespoons Olive oil
  • Sea or Kosher Salt and Black Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 14 ounces of Chicken Broth or Vegetable Broth (1 + 3/4 cup)
  • 2 cups Smoked Gouda, shredded
  • 1 + 1/2 cups frozen Spinach, partially thawed
  • 3 cups long-grain Brown Rice, cooked
  • Fresh Parsley, chopped, for garnish
  • Parmesan Cheese, grated, for serving


  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium-low heat, add onion, sugar and season with salt and pepper. Saute 15-20 minutes, adding more oil if it begins to stick to the pan. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  3. In the same pan the onions were sauteed in melt butter and whisk in flour. Cook for two to three minutes, whisking. Slowly whisk in milk and chicken broth. Bring to a simmer, whisking often. Stir in Gouda. Add spinach and onion mixture. Turn off heat. Whisk well and break apart any clumps of spinach.
  4. Stir in cooked rice. Pour into greased 9x13 casserole/baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes until bubbly. Let set for ten minutes before serving. Garnish with parsley and serve with Parmesan if desired.
