Saganaki is a traditional Greek dish. Shrimp is sautéed with onion, celery and tomatoes and topped with feta cheese. Fresh herbs add a refreshing touch. I've added rice to make it a complete one-pot meal.

The dish takes its name from the shallow, two-handled pan it is cooked in, called a saganaki.


* You can use any type of fresh herbs. If using a strong one, such as rosemary, add the whole sprig and remove it before serving the dish.

* You can find minced garlic in the produce section of the market.

* Slice vegetables in a food processor.


* To buy: 3/4 pound peeled shrimp, 1 package reduced-fat feta cheese, 1 package quick-cooking brown rice, 1 red onion, 1 bunch celery, 4 plum tomatoes, 1 bunch basil, 1 bunch mint and 1 bunch sage.
