Tip #1 Sharpen your knives properly!

Prep all of your vegetables prior to starting anything! Begin to cook the brown rice. Now place all the ground meat into a large skillet and begin to cook through. Drizzle with olive oil and add in garlic, onions, and all the spices (amount of spices is to taste). Begin to mix in tomato sauce. You will only need to stir in about 3/4 of the can. Cover and let it simmer until use.

Preheat oven to 375 F. Next place cooked rice into a large bowl. Add in spinach, feta, and sun-dried tomatoes. Next stir in meat mixture and mix it up really well!

I like the concept of an egg to top it off. It looks good.

With small, baby peppers, this will be a great appetizer too.

I personally think that this dish paired with your Southwest Stuffed Tomatoes and the deep fried green beans would be a meal fit for a King....nay....an Emperor!
