    1 cup uncooked- Instant Brown Rice
    1- Tilapia (Filet)
    1 cut in half- Whole Wheat Pita Bread (Pocket)
    1 tbsp- Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Makes 2 servings.
(One 6-1/2" Pita Pocket cut in half and stuffed with half of ingredients mixture is 1 serving)

Prepare brown rice as instructed on box. While rice is cooking, put 1 tbsp olive oil in skillet and cook Tilapia filet until it flakes apart. (set aside covered in a dish). Put 1 oz. (2 tbsp) water in skillet and cook bell pepper strips until tender. (I use the same skillet that I cooked the Tilapia in to give the peppers more flavor)
In a medium size bowl, add rice, stir in Tilapia filet (Tilapia should flake apart and mix well with rice) Next add bell pepper strips. Cover and set mixture aside.
Heat Pita bread in microwave for 15 seconds.
Stuff your pita pocket with half of the rice, Tilapia, bell pepper mixture and serve.

    This was a good dinner, I added garlic powder, dill and fried the rice with the fish and green peppers also added a little lemon juice. - 6/6/12

    A nice light meal, but too bland and dry for us. I added dill weed, more olive oil and more water to make a sauce from the pan drippings. You cannot put too much additional flavor in or you will never taste the fish. We kept the fish in chunks just to emphasize its flavor. - 2/2/08
