Another quick post as I must admit I liked this one more than I thought I would. Isn’t this normally the way?
This started off a dinner this evening but ended up as tomorrow’s lunch. It’s a very simple salad of brown rice, feta and vegetables. It’s best served with the rice slightly warm.
- 200g cooked brown rice
- 1 large tomato, diced
- 80g Feta cheese, diced
- 1 onion finely sliced.
- About two handfuls of mixed thinly sliced peppers (I used three whole mini versions)
- 1 stick of celery very finely sliced
- One carrot, grated
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 ‘glug’ of garlic infused oil (sorry workmates!)
- 1 handful of chopped fresh basil leaves
- Salt and pepper
What could be easier! Just prepare the vegetables and mix together in a bowl. I fried the onion to soften and sweeten it up first. Add the oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper (to taste) and mix well.
Lokks lovely. Quick, light and healthy too – and you got 2 meals out of it. Sold! Thanks, Tracey
Yes – guilt free and cheap too! Probably more like 1 1/2 meals in the end to be honest, but still! Would have been nice with chargrilled lamb though, but I’ll see meat free January through….
Stick with it, you’re doing good. I managed a meat-free decade, don’t know how, I hardly manage a day now…
Ooh, this looks like a tasty and balanced veggie disht! Just the kind of quick and easy weekday supper I like. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
You’re welcome, thank you. Definitely worth a try and you can tweak it however you prefer.
