In large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, red pepper, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper, stirring, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add rice; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add stock; bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until rice is almost tender and just a bit of liquid remains, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, shred spinach; stir into rice. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Fluff with fork.
