Recipe: Red Pepper & Feta Rice

by Carrinicole

As I continue to reduce eating meat, I have to get creative with rice dishes to satiate my dinners.

This is a quick rice dish with Greek flair. The sweetness of the roasted red peppers pair well with the saltiness of feta. I like to eat this dish with the cool crispiness of a salad.

Great to pair with a Greek salad.
