ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup instant brown rice
  • 1 1/2 cups frounceen 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

directions

Bring the broth to a boil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the rice and bring to a simmer; cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 4 minutes. Stir in the peas and return to a simmer over high heat. Cover, reduce the 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 the heat and stir in the scallions, feta, mint and pepper. Cover and let stand until the liquid is absorbed, 3 to 5 minutes.
