So brown rice. Where have you been all my life? I eat brown everything else, and I knew I was supposed to eat brown rice, but it seemed so chewy and hard and gross and would take over the whole dish with its brown-ricey flavour. Again, as with many food things, I was so wrong.
I like being wrong sometimes. If it leads to awesomeness, anyway.
So. eat. is good.
3 cups cooked brown rice
1 punnet grape/cherry tomatoes, halved, or 2 very ripe red tomatoes
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 cup danish feta (or any feta really, but I like it salty)
1 handful each basil, mint and parsley, shredded
1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
any other veggies you want to add. I added green beans here, but pumpkin or sweet potato would be rad.
juice of 1 lemon and rind of half
1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
big drizzle of olive oil
salt and cracked black pepper
1. Mix. duh.
Do check that the seasoning gives it a ton of flavour… it can be a bit blah otherwise. Eat. Feel your insides having a party… in a good way.
