2 rashers bacon (middle only, no fat - sliced)
3 mushrooms (sliced)

Have chicken stock simmering in a saucepan. Sautee Onions in butter for 2-3 minutes until soft and slightly coloured. Add bacon and mushroon and cook for 5 minutes. Add rice, coating rice in bacon mixture for 5 minutes, stirring regularly. On a medium heat add white wine and stir until no more liquid remains. The add the stock 1/2 a cup at a time, stirring until the liquid has evapourated. Continue like this until all the stock is added. On a low heat add the spinach and cover the mixture.
