Today’s breakfast and lunch were clones of yesterday’s meals.  I bet you can guess which ones!  So, tonight I bring you a very simple dinner and very short post. 

This was based on the recipe “Couscous with Swiss Chard, Raisins and Feta” in Everyday with Rachael Ray, May 2010 issue.  I used the recipe as an outline and subbed for some ingredients I already had.

Grains with Spinach, Cranberries, and Feta
Makes one large serving

1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Harvest Grains mix (or Israeli couscous)
1 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup feta cheese
1/6 cup dried cranberries
1 clove garlic
2-3 handfuls baby spinach
salt and pepper

-Cook the grains in the vegetable broth according to package directions
-While the grains are cooking, saute the spinach, garlic, salt and pepper in a small skillet
-Stir the cranberries into the cooked grains
-Put grain mixture in a bowl, then top with sauteed spinach and feta.  Enjoy!

      Thanks!! Yes, it was tasty and I’m sure it could be changed up a hundred different ways. Next time, I’m going to put some garbanzos in 🙂
