Recipe

Sometimes the simplest meals are the most delicious.  This meal couldn't be easier but truly takes advantage of all the yummy summer produce available.  Since we aren't using too many ingredients, try to find the best zucchini and tomatoes you can because it will make a huge difference in the end product.  And of course, don't shy away from switching up the cheese.  Goat cheese, gorgonzola, feta, or a fresh mozzarella would all be delicious.

Directions

  1. Cook the rice according to package directions. This can vary depending on what kind of brown rice you purchase. You can cook most brown rice by bringing the brown rice and water (2:1 water to rice) to a boil, then cover the rice and turn down to a simmer for 15-20 minutes until the water is absorbed completely. Turn off the heat, fluff it with a fork and cover it again for 5 minutes.
  2. Sauté the zucchini in 1 tbsp. olive oil until tender.
  3. Toss together all the ingredients and top with Parmesan.
