Greek Brown and Wild Rice Bowl

Greek Brown and Wild Rice Bowl

This fresh rice dish tastes like the Mediterranean in a bowl! It’s 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. This recipe comes to us courtesy of Taste of Home.

Serves 2

Cooking Tip of the Week: Cooking fluffy brown rice can be easy! Rinse the dried rice, boil it in a large pot of water (just like when you prepare pasta!) for 30 minutes, drain the water, and put a lid on it to steam for 10 minutes.

Food for Thought: Rice is a staple for many people worldwide. Brown rice offers more fiber, B vitamins, protein and minerals than white rice, making it a healthier choice.
