    Yummy and easy! We love all the ingredients. I always look for ways to add spinach to dishes. I served this with grilled salmon and broccoli to dinner guests and everyone loved it! I'll definitely make this again. It will also be good to take to a potluck dinner. Thanks! - 8/3/08

    Really nice, hopefully will make a nice lunch cold tomorrow. The feta really makes it, and I didn't realise feta was this low fat. I cooked the rice in vegetable stock and added red pepper. Next time I think I'll add chili too, and maybe basil. - 8/26/09

    This was incredible! I used a little extra feta, and added some left over asperagus and some fried tofu. I added some spices and soy sauce (rosemary, thyme, savory). This is a great way to use up any leftover veggies too. - 8/9/08

  • I tripled this recipe and used it as side dish for my work lunches. It is very tasty. The only thing I added was scallions because I do like the flavor. This was really good but not pretty to look at so I didn't take a picture. Just try it! - 6/16/14
