Heat some olive oil in the pan, and sauté the diced onion for a minute or two. Add the rice to it, and sauté until it is coated well with oil. Now add in the wine.

Add the spinach puree, combine it well with the rice, and cook for some time with the lid off. This will allow the excess water to evaporate. Take the pan off the fire, and add the parsley and a pinch of nutmeg if you'd like to bring in a different flavor. You could also garnish it with some juliennes of onion.
