This Greek rice bowl recipe is a wonderful meal for one, and a great way to use up leftover brown rice!

I’m very nearly done with my new cookbook. At this writing, I have 10 recipes left to go. It’s been a huge undertaking that has taken me the better part of the summer to complete. I liken writing a cookbook to giving birth to a two ton gorilla. You have moments where you’re happy, moments where you are screaming and pulling your hair out and moments were all you can do is keep going. But in the end, it’s just sooooo worth it when you hold that first print of your book in our hands!

This recipe is a simple one adapted from an old eMeals recipe, and assumes that all your ingredients are already cooked. This is a great recipe for using up leftover brown rice, or simply making a hearty meal for one. You could add some chicken to this to really round it out as a meal, but it’s great on its own. It would also make a wonderful side dish!

While this recipe was really developed for one person, it’s also great for college students living in dorm rooms. It’s very quick and easy to put together and is absolutely delicious! You can get instant brown rice if you’re really in a pinch and can’t cook like that in your dorm room

I mentioned adding chicken to this. If you decide to do that, a great way to prepare some is to bake a boneless, skinless chicken breast with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. It’s simple, easy and will taste great with this dish. Sprinkle just enough over the chicken breast to give it flavor. I would say about 1/2 a tsp. olive oil, 1-2 tsp. balsamic vinegar and then just a dash of the salt and pepper. You can even sprinkle on some dried oregano or basil if you like.
