LONDON VEGFEST 2015 (SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT)

I've got some exciting news to share!

I will be doing a COOKING DEMO at this year's VegFest in London (October 10th). 

If you're in the city, come enjoy what should be a fantastic event and come watch me cook jollof rice live. I've never done anything like this before so should be interessttiinngg... Considering the fact that I tend to avoid public speaking at all costs, I feel as though this gives me the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone a little bit. First time for everything and all that good stuff. If you've got any tips and tricks on presenting, then drop me a line...seriously. I make no promises, but if I get the chance to film the whole thing, I'll put it up on my YouTube channel for anyone who can't make it or for anyone who's vaguely interested ;)

For more info, visit the London VegFest website.

Have a beautiful weekend!

10 MINUTE VEGGIE FRIED RICE

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 .

Ingredients
(serves 2)
- 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.
