Athenian Rice With Feta Cheese

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chabear01

Posted for ZWT II 2006-Greece. I found this recipe on, and find that posting any recipes found elsewhere here gives me better nutritional values than the sites I get them off of. Loving Zaar!!! *** Note*** to soften sun-dried tomatoes, place in 1/3 cup boiling water; stir to coat. Let stand 10 minutes; drain water.

This was a bit dry (perhaps becaused I decreased the oil a bit) but otherwise really tasty. BF enjoyed it too. I halved the recipe but wished I made the whole thing. I did not soften the sun-dried tomatoes as I like them chewy, and I used Greek kalamata olives. I could definitely see adding more garlic too. The rice stuck to the pan so if you want an easy clean up and don't care too much about the extra calories, I suggest you use more oil. Thanks very much for this recipe!
