Bearette’s Feast

Have any of you ever seen the film Babette’s Feast? If not, you should. It’s a great foodie flick. This feast, however, was brought to you by our beloved Bearette, who shared the recipe a few days ago. It’s so simple, but so delicious.

Speaking of Bearette, guess what I’ll be doing this weekend? I’ll be meeting other bloggers! I’m so excited about it…I feel like these people are already close friends. Blogging has introduced me to so many people…people that I would have never met otherwise. For example, Bearette’s from New York. How cool is that?! I never would have known her without this amazing blog world. Lisa, Bdogg, LostInTX, and New Mezger will also be attending. I can’t wait!

I have a few new blog toys to play with if you’re interested. Kickpleat turned me on to last.fm, so you can now visit my music page to see what I’ve been listening to. I’ve also added some photos and some poems. Just random fun stuff, all clickable from the list on the right.

Brown Rice with Broccoli, Tomatoes, and Feta

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (I used Texmati and steamed it in vegetable broth)
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute 1 minute. Add tomatoes, broccoli, oregano, and water; cover and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes or until broccoli is bright green and tender. Stir in brown rice and add salt to taste. Top with crumbled feta.

Makes 4 servings.
