  1. Begin by cooking the rice in the broth or water in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil, then immediately reduce the heat to a simmer and simmer for 15 min. Once the 15 min is up, lift the lid and add the spinach to wilt. Cover for 5 min and fluff with a fork.
  2. Meanwhile, as the rice is cooking, add the butter to an already hot pan. Add the pumpkin, red onion, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook for 5 min stirring very little so the veggies can caramelize.
  3. Add the rice to the veggies and season with black pepper. Top with the dried cranberries and enjoy!
