Thanks to our hostess, Michael, for bringing us this popular weekly event. It's always a taste-treat!
I think I got this recipe from Southern Living Magazine. It's very tasty and healthy, too. Best of all, it fits my criteria of quick and easy!
BROWN RICE WITH FETA, PISTACHIOS AND MINT
Makes: 8 servings Prep: 15 minutes
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups uncooked quick-cooking brown rice
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup chopped pistachios
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
Stir in salt and 3-1/2 cups water; bring to a boil.
Stir in brown rice, cover, reduce heat to low. and cook 10 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
Stir in remaining ingredients.
With this type of recipe, I almost always find that I like more of everything than the recipe calls for. In this case, I added the entire 6-oz. carton of feta cheese and considerably more mint and lemon zest. I also sprinkled extra pistachios on top. Of course, you will season with salt and pepper to your personal preference.
