TIP You can use this recipe to make a tart with a rice crust. Mix cooked rice with 2 whisked egg whites and line a tart tin with it. Add the filling and bake as described. I sometimes make a breakfast strata with the spinach mixture. Just arrange bread slices in an ovenproof dish and top with the mixture (you can prep this the night before). Then bake it just before serving.
