Feta & Cranberry Rice Salad

I’ve been on the search for new lunches, healthy but filling and tasty. Rice salads have been ticking those boxes recently. I’ve also had a real thing for feta, ever since eating an absolutely divine spinach, feta and pine nut pie several weeks ago. I spotted this recipe online but decided to add a tin of sweetcorn and a bag of spinach into the mix. I loved that besides the cooking of the rice this can all be made in a couple of minutes, making week day lunch meal prep much easier to fit into a weekend. The recipe serves 4 but I stretched it to 5, so I had a lunch for every day of the working week. It was delicious hot or cold; on colder days I microwaved it for a couple of minutes, the melted feta was divine.

I’m also a huge fan of dried cranberries so this recipe was definitely a winner in my eyes.

Wild Rice Salad

I’ve been looking for new, healthy lunches to take to work. Something that isn’t too time/effort consuming to make but that is nutritious. I turned to Deliciously Ella‘s cookbook¬†and spotted this salad made with black rice and pine nuts; I was sold. Black rice most definitely isn’t photogenic but when paired with some steamed veg it makes for a tasty lunch. I changed quantities and ratios in the recipe to my tastes but the basic ingredients are the same.
