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 .

(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.


  1. Quick and easy! This is what I need. Thanks for sharing

  2. Looks tasty. Curious if using palm oil instead of sunflower oil might give it even more of a west Africa flavour.

    1. No doubt! It would enrich the colour of the dish too.

  3. How will i get vegan sausages and is palm oil really healthy?
