Yesterday was our back to school picnic and it was the perfect fall day! Everyone brought a dish that reflected our family's heritage...we brought Greek Rice. And no, we are not Greek! Andy is mostly Italian and about a 1/4 Jewish, I am mostly English with some Welch, French and Spanish thrown in the mix - so our dish reflected the Mediterranean side of our family. The recipe is from a very dear friend of mine who is a culinary inspiration among other things! Her name is Kristen and her blog,Vegetarian Family Cooking, is full of the most delicious recipes. I cannot take any credit for the Greek Rice recipe - it is all hers - and it is delicious! (The picture above is from Kristen too.) It's filled with sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta cheese, zucchini, garlic, spinach and more! I added a little salt and pepper before serving and some green beans when cooking the zucchini as I only had one. You can use it as a side dish, a lunch entree, wrapped in a tortilla with avocado or a tasty and healthy snack. Click here for the Greek Rice recipe.Happy, healthy cooking!
