Warmed Pita Rollups with Spinach and Rice

What you need: 

Minute Rice, 2-4 servings
package of raw spinach
2 tomatoes
2-4 pitas
olive oil
tahini sauce or dressing
assorted herbs and spices (dill, garlic, cumin, cilantro, etc)

What you do: 

Prepare Minute Rice according to directions (if speed is not an issue, and you prefer, any other rice is fine and just as tasty). Prepare rice according to directions.
While rice is cooking, begin steaming spinach. Be generous--spinach cooks down.
Chop tomatoes.
When rice is finishe'd (about five minutes if using Minute Rice), add as many spices and herbs as you'd like. One of my favorite combinations includes fresh (or dried) dill, cumin, salt, black pepper, and dried garlic. Add margarine if you choose.
When spinach is finished, add a tiny bit of olive oil to a saute pan and warm pitas to desired crispness.
When pitas are warm, create a wrap by adding as much rice, spinach, and chopped tomatoes as desired. Drizzle on tahini sauce or dressing, and eat like a taco.
Very messy, but very yummy (and fast!)
