Greens, Beans and …..

mmmmmmmmmm another recipe! I wasn’t going to add one until later in the month but I’ve just made it, tasted it and it’s delicious AND nutritious.
Another big thank you to my friend Val for sharing it with me!

Greek Rice Pilaf

Greek Rice Pilaf

Colourful, Nutritious and Delicious!

1 large Onion chopped
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground B lack Pepper
4 cups chopped and washed Spinach
3 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice
4 cups cooked Rice
1 cup frozen Peas
1 cup drained, cooked Chick Peas
2 Tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh Dill
1 cup Feta Cheese, crumbled

In a heavy skillet saute onions and garlic in oil until onions begin to soften. Add garlic, mint and pepper, continue to saute for 2 minutes. Stir in spinach, lemon juice, tomatoes, chick peas, rice, peas and dill. Cover and cook 3-4 minutes stirring occasionally until spinach is limp and rice is hot. Stir in feta, let it sit for a couple of minutes and serve.

There is so much goodness in this recipe (besides the taste) with just the greens, beans and grain…the other additions just up the nutrition level!

Would love to hear your suggestions for some variations and additions…..
