Brown Rice Tart with Tomato and Feta

Some times even if you are not a vegetarian, a light dish is appealing. This brown rice tart is great tasting, easy to make and healthy. The recipe is one of my favorites from a vegetarian cookbook. This dish doesn't necessary have to be for vegetarians, but everyone who loves preparing, serving and eating great food.
