The Recipe Post #4: Easy Mediterranean Feta Rice
This is one of my complete go-to, easy recipes. It’s unbelievably quick, and tastes fresh and filling. Plus, it has feta cheese in it, which is just the best. The cheat is the use of the Tilda rice, which adds some extra flavour and saves more time.
I initially found this on a site like Good Food using different rice and veg, and then have adapted it a little each time I’ve made it to suit my mood or the people eating it.
To serve 2, you will need:
6-8 cherry tomatoes, halved
Handful rocket leaves, and extra to serve
1tbsp olive oil
125g feta cheese – I tend to vary how much depending on how sticky I want it!
1 red pepper, diced
Tilda lime and coriander rice (one of the ‘2mins in the microwave’ packs)
200g (1/2 can) of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Pour the olive oil into a deep non-stick frying pan over a gentle heat. Add the roughly chopped tomatoes and diced pepper and gently fry.
Stir in a generous handful of rocket leaves. When wilted, add the diced feta cheese.
Carefully spoon in chickpeas and the Tilda rice and continue to cook, stirring slowly for 3-5 minutes, until cooked through.
Serve hot, with fresh rocket. We sometimes add warm pitta breads if you want more substance to the dish.
Quick, simple, and tasty. I made this for me and my sister when our parents were away and I took over the week’s food… it went down very well!
