Greek Brown and Wild Rice Bowls

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. —Darla Andrews, Schertz, Texas

  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup pitted Greek olives, sliced
  • Minced fresh parsley, optional

Test Kitchen tips
  • For more protein, add some tuna or grilled chicken to these bowls.
  • One package of prepared rice mix is equal to about 2 cups.

  • 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.
