Makes 4-5 servings


2 cinnamon sticks

¼ tsp cumin seeds

1 tbsp whole coriander

¼ tsp mustard seeds

¼ tsp turmeric

1 tsp kosher salt

1 tbsp avocado oil

3 cups jasmine rice, rinsed

4 ½ cups water

4-5 farm eggs

8 oz bag baby spinach


  1. Toast spices in avocado oil until fragrant. Add rice and toast for a minute. Add water and bring to a boil. Cover, turn down the heat, and simmer for 14 minutes. Turn off the heat and let sit for 5 minutes, covered.

  2. The above step can also be completed in an Instant Pot: Reduce the water to 3 cups. Toast the spices, add rice and water, and cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then release the rest of the pressure and fluff.

  3. While the rice is cooking, bring a second pot of water to a boil. Salt generously and using a slotted spoon, lower the eggs gently into the water. Boil for 6 minutes, then remove with the slotted spoon and cool in a water bath.

  4. Wilt the spinach in a frying pan with 1 tsp of avocado oil and a pinch of salt.

  5. To serve, divide the rice between plates and top with spinach and a peeled egg.
