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 flavour. For a hand-held version, leave out the rice and tuck the rest of the ingredients in a pita pocket.” —Darla Andrews, Schertz, Texas

Recipe Notes

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.
