Incredible Baked Rice

This is one of the best dishes I ever had and it so easy to put together.

1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1/2 cup vegan ground
3 roma tomatoes chopped
fresh turmeric
1/2 tsp curry powder
2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper
1 cup uncooked rice
1 cup almond milk
1/4 cup nutritional yeast

Sauté onion in oil until tender. Add garlic and vegan ground. Stir well. Add tomatoes, turmeric, curry and 1/2 cup of water. Lower the heat and simmer gently for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the spinach, salt and pepper. Cook under low heat for another 10 minutes.
Meanwhile preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Grease a casserole dish. Add the uncooked rice, nutritional yeast and then the sauce. Add the almond milk.  Stir with a fork and level with spoon.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and stir again adding 1 1/2 cups of water. Again level with a spoon and bake for another 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and stir again adding more water if it looks too dry.
Bake for another 25 minutes or until done and rice is soft There should be a crisp, golden crust on top.
