For this to take 10 minutes, it does require you to have some leftover cooked rice on hand to speed up the process. With that as a base, you can go to town with what else you throw in there. This is a version I've made a number of times now as there is nothing fancy or complicated about it - perfect for those evenings when I can't be bothered to spend ages in the kitchen but still want something filling and deliciously savoury. Always served with a side of broccoli just so I can up my intake of greens .
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 1/2 red onion (chopped)
- 1 green bell pepper (chopped)
- 1 scotch bonnet pepper (chopped)
- 1-2 vegan sausages (chopped) OR replace with 1/2 cup cooked beans/lentils
- 1 tbsp sunflower oil
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp curry powder
Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the chopped vegetables and vegan sausage (or cooked beans/lentils) for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly.
Add the cooked rice, thyme and curry to the pan. Keep stirring and combine all the ingredients for another 5 minutes until the rice is heated all the way through.
Serve with your favourite steamed vegetables.
