Awhile back (oh that's helpful) I tried a recipe ... it was a quick stirfry type meal. The ingredients included broccoli, rice, feta cheese. Tomatoes perhaps. As you can see I'm sketchy on the details. I can just wing it, but for all I know I'm forgetting a key ingredient.
It was posted on the BB and it wasn't a CL recipe.
I'm doing my recipe plan. I have broccoli, and feta, and cooked brown rice in the freezer.
Ring any bells?
I reviewed this on my blog and I think on the CLBB too but I can't find it. Is this right?
Rice, Brocooli and Feta Cheese Saute
From Quick Vegetarian Pleasures, Jeanne Lemlin
1 Cup white or brown rice (I used brown)
2 Cups water
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp veggie/canola oil (I omitted)
1/4 cup olive oil (I used more like a tablespoon, 2 at the most)
4 garlic cloves minced
2 medium tomatoes cored, seeded and diced (I didn't bother seeding or coring)
1 bunch broccoli stalks peeled and cut into bite size pieces (about 5 cups)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup water (I used white wine instead)
1 cup feta cheese crumbled (I used about 2/3 cup instead)
Freshly ground black pepper
Combine the rice water salt and oil in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat (I just used my rice cooker, making my measurements based on the appliance). Lower heat to simmer and cook until all of the water is absorbed (20 min for white rice, 45 for brown). When done, remove from heat and keep covered.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Saute the garlic 2 minutes stirring frequently. Do not brown. Add the tomatoes and saute 2 minutes more. Add broccoli and oregano, toss well. Pour in water and cover the pan. Raise heat to medium high, cook 5 minutes or untl the broccoli is tender but not mushy. (remove cover occasionally and toss)
Stir in the hot rice, feta cheese and black pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
That's it. Thank you SO much for the help. It's dinner for Tuesday.
That sounds fantastic! And I have everything here, including a huge bag of broccoli I need to use Thanks for sharing.
