This is a really great dish to throw together if you have some leftover rice. Just throw it in a tupperware with the lemon juice and spices to let it marinate until you’re ready to use it. It’s so easy to throw together. I made this one night when I had a late class and it took about 10 minutes to throw together, but packs a lot of flavor and a decent nutrient profile. I even had leftovers for lunch the next day!
2 cups wild rice (virtually any rice will work, but I like that earthy flavor in wild rice)
1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
Generous shakes of Oregano and thyme (use your judgment. I went really heavy on the oregano)
Salt and pepper
Combine these and let sit. I did this overnight and the flavor was perfect. Longer than that would only let the flavors meld more.
2 tbsp Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt
1 small diced cucumber (I used Persian mini cukes- fantastic!)
15 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup cooked lentils (I use Trader Joe’s cooked lentils from the product section)
20 cooked shrimp, deveined and tails off
1/4 cup (or less) feta cheese
15 kalamata olives, finely chopped
Combine all ingredients and enjoy!
