Brown Rice Delight

I have the most delicious new snack. It's low fat, healthy and delicious!

I love having left-over brown rice that's been cooked in chicken or beef broth
in the fridge. I enjoy eating it as a snack. Sometimes plain, 
sometimes with just a little drizzle of good balsamic 
or a spoonful of chutney stirred in.

I now have a new favorite way.

I warm the rice to room temperature. Then I section an orange over the rice bowl 
(I've been using cara cara oranges) and squeeze out any leftover orange juice, 
add a little feta and finish with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

I can't even find the words to describe the awesomeness of this combination of flavors. 
You must try it for yourself.

  1. Andrea,
    It sounds pretty strange, but I can see how the flavors would work. I never cook my rice in broth--must remedy that practice soon.
    Thanks for the idea!

    1. Lol, I know, it does sound strange but it truly is the bomb :)

  2. You've turned rice into a fresh, versatile salad--and it's healthy/guilt free. Thanks for adding your recipe to Foodie Friday!

    1. Your very welcome! I sure do enjoy it.
