One Pot Wonder!

My Easy One-Pot Brown Rice Mediterranean Salad!



– 2 large handfuls of fresh basil, torn

– 2 cups brown rice

– 2 large handfuls of sun-dried tomatoes, sliced thinly

– 4 tablespoons of sun-dried tomato oil (from jar of sun-dried tomatoes)

– 4 large cloves of garlic, minced finely

– 1 large red capsicum, diced small

– 2 handfuls of Kalamata olives, sliced roughly

– 1 medium zucchini, diced small

– 5 large tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

– 1 medium brown onion, cubed finely

– 1 medium juicy lemon, squeezed

– 1 large pinch of pepper to taste


Boil the rice, as per the packet directions. Once rice has boiled, strain the rice, leaving a small amount of the cooking liquid in the pot, then place the rice back into the pot.

Add your garlic, onion, zucchini and sun-dried tomato oil, then cook, stirring occasionally for approximately 10 minutes on low heat until the onions are semi-translucent. Add your sun-dried tomatoes, capsicum, kalamata olives, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, pepper and torn fresh basil!

Compiling the beauty:

Serve in your favourite large salad serving bowl and enjoy! This salad is fantastic to bring to picnic lunches, as I did today for a friends birthday!


Serves a tribe!
