This fresh rice dish tastes like the Mediterranean in a bowl! It is short on ingredients but packs in so much flavor. For a hand-held version, leave out the rice and tuck the rest of the ingredients in a pita pocket. —Darla Andrews, Boerne, Texas
Greek Brown and Wild Rice Bowls Recipe photo by Taste of Home
1 package (8-1/2 ounces) ready-to-serve whole grain brown and wild rice medley
1/4 cup Greek vinaigrette, divided
1/2 medium ripe avocado, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup pitted Greek olives, sliced
Minced fresh parsley, optional
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the rice mix and 2 tablespoons vinaigrette. Cover and cook on high until heated through, about 2 minutes. Divide between 2 bowls. Top with avocado, tomatoes, cheese, olives, remaining dressing and, if desired, parsley.
Health Tip: These otherwise healthy bowls are high in sodium because of the prepared rice, dressing, feta cheese and Greek olives. Save on sodium by cooking rice from scratch and using a simple oil and vinegar dressing.
