🥣 2-3 cups of chopped fresh veggies or frozen (Used here: green pepper, baby Portobellos, carrot, green onion, baby spinach)
🥣 2 cups prepared instant brown rice, quinoa, farro, lentils, amaranth, etc. (Used here: 90-second microwave brown rice) You can also use an instant pot to reduce the cooking time of uncooked dried grains. For example, quinoa only needs a couple of mins!)
🥣 1 TB olive oil
🥣 1 TB red wine vinegar or apple cider/balsamic vinegar etc
🥣 1 tsp dried thyme
🥣 1 tsp dried dill
🥣 1/2 tsp onion powder
🥣 2 cloves minced garlic or 1/2 tsp dry powder
🥣 1 tbs lemon juice (optional)
🥣 pinch of stevia (balances vinegar and lemon)
🥣 1/2-1 tsp salt
🥣 1/2-1 tsp cracked pepper
🥣 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
🥣 1/2 cup reduced-fat feta

Optional—toss in reduced sugar dried cranberries for a nice sweet and tart addition. Olives or banana peppers are always great in this dish too.

Heat oil over medium heat. Add chopped veggies and sauté until softened, 3-4 minutes. Wait to add baby spinach if using. Add garlic, cook for 1 minute. Add dried herbs. Cool for an additional minute until fragrant.

Turn heat to medium-high, add vinegar and lemon juice. Scrape up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle mixture with stevia (1/4-1/2 tsp) Allow to cook until vinegar and lemon reduce, about 1-2 minutes.

Remove pan from heat. Add chopped walnuts and feta. Top your grains. You’re done—enjoy! 🥄🥣🧄🧅🫑🍲🍚
