Minted Peas & Rice with Feta

The flavors of fresh mint and feta enliven this instant brown rice. Toss any leftovers with some cooked shrimp for a satisfying, easy lunch.

This Recipe Is:
Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes
  • 1 1/4   cups
    reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4   cup
    instant brown rice
  • 1 1/2   cups
    frozen peas, (6 ounces)
  • 3/4   cup
    sliced scallions
  • 1/4   cup
    finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4   cup
    sliced fresh mint
    freshly ground pepper, to taste
  1. Bring broth to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add rice and bring to a simmer; cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 4 minutes. Stir in peas and return to a simmer over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook until the peas are hot and the rice has absorbed most of the liquid, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in scallions, feta, mint and pepper. Cover and let stand until the liquid is absorbed, 3 to 5 minutes.
