2 1/4 cups water
1 cup long-grain rice, uncooked
2 cups fresh spinach, cut into thin strips
1 1/2 cups peeled, seeded, and chopped tomato

Bring 2 1/4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; stir in rice. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Combine rice, spinach, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl.
