This is honestly the first time I’ve made this at home!
I usually always buy those packet ones, as they are so easy! But I had everything in for a homemade one packed with fresh veg so thought I would make up a batch for dinner and have with my lunches for a couple of days.
For about 5-6 portions you will need:
- 1 onion
- 1 red pepper
- 1 carrot
- 8 mushrooms
- Handful of frozen peas
- 200g long grain rice
- 400ml chicken stock
- 1/2 tsp each of Cumin and Paprika
Finely dice up all the veg
Sweat the onions, carrots and peppers for around 5 minutes, then add the mushrooms.
Sweat for another minute or two then add the rice, spices and chicken stock.
Cover with a lid and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the peas.
Simmer for another, 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave to stand for 5 minutes with the lid on. I added a good pinch of salt and pepper at the end.
Will have some tomorrow for lunch cold with some grilled Salmon!
Hope you like it!
