Customize them with whatever vegetables you prefer or have on hand. If you do not like feta cheese, use blue cheese or mozzarella. I used brown rice in my recipe which is ready in just 10 minutes for a quick meal. I made a simple lemon vinaigrette for this recipe so that you can really taste the awesome flavors of the grilled vegetables.
I am a huge fan of using whole-grains in my recipes. In fact, I rarely buy any grains that are not whole-grains. Whole-grains have more fiber and nutrients than their refined counterparts. They are digested slower and therefore, spike your blood sugar less.

These bowls turned out awesome and I could see them being a summer staple! I would also make them with chicken or make them Mexican-style with black beans, corn and peppers.
For this recipe, I used Minute® Brown Rice. Minute® Rice is non-GMO and gluten-free. I love this brand of rice because it is ready in no time, tastes great and is nutritious. March was National Nutrition Month and of course, as a dietitian, I enjoyed celebrating in different ways. As a dietitian, I would say that my top 3 recommendations to people are to eat more fruits and vegetables, reduce salt and eat mostly whole-grains.
Minute Rice also has a great club called The Recipe Club® which provides lots of fun recipe ideas right to your inbox.
