Spinach & Brown Rice Pie

This rice pie is amazingly delicious and is one of those recipes that works hot, cold, or at room temperature and can be eaten with a spoon, fork, or fingers. There are so many variations that can be done with it, for example, with some ham and cheese it would be amazing too.
