Spinach & Leek Torta di Riso – Open Recipe, Insert Vegetables

Posted on

I made this delicious and rustic torta di riso with fresh spinach and leeks, but the recipe is a perfect catchall for those abundant summer vegetables. Things like eggplant, peppers, beans, and squash will all work beautifully. Just cut them kind of small, cook them tender, and let the rice, cheese, and eggs do the rest.

 
 

 

 
 
Ingredients for 6 portions:
1 tbsp olive oil, plus more as needed
3 cups chopped leeks (2 large leeks, about 1 cup sautéed)
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups cooked rice
1 1/2 cups finely chopped cooked spinach, squeezed very dry
2 large eggs, beaten
3/4 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, or other delicious cheese, plus more to dust pan and top
1 generous teaspoon fine salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
pinch cayenne
pinch nutmeg
– 350 degrees F. for 35 – 40 minutes
