Spicy Prawns, Rice & Broccoli

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by my blog. The recipe today mostly focuses on the ingredients used for cooking the prawns. This has definitely got to be one of my favourite meals, I LOVE LOVE LOVE prawns, rice and broccoli!! It’s a nice meal to make and easy to prepare, I would advise preparing the broccoli and putting it into a pot ready to be cooked, then prepare your rice how ever you like and lastly the prawns. This meal tastes delicious, full of flavour with a spicy kick.

Rice with Kale and Sweetcorn

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and thank you to my new followers 🙂

I’m always looking for ways to add more vegetables to my meals, and the addition of kale and corn to the rice was such a good idea. The crisp, sweetness of the corn and earthy taste of the kale gave the rice so much more flavour. Also, sweetcorn is a good source of vitamin C and dietary fibre, whilst kale is a good source of vitamin C and A both providing the body with nutrients. This recipe makes a great side dish and can accompany many meals. The measurements below are only a rough guide depending on how many people you make this for.

Recipe: Rice with kale and sweetcorn (serves 4)

Ingredients

Rice for 4 people

Large handful of kale

100g sweetcorn

1 tsp butter

Method

  • Wash the rice thoroughly until the water runs almost clear.
  • Place the rice in a pot and pour in enough water the same depth of the rice.
  • Wash the kale and add to the pot along with the sweetcorn and butter.
  • Allow the rice to reach a gentle simmer, then keep the heat low and let the rice finish cooking until fluffy.
  • Check the rice and stir everything until gently combined.
  • Serve once cooked.

Quorn Mince

Hi everyone, today’s recipe is another quick, tasty vegetarian meal. It’s my own take on chilli con carne but meat free. When I made this meal it was only for me and I just used ingredients needed for one person. There’s not much veg going on either but you could have it with a little salad. Also, when I’m making rice I like to add more flavour by using a little thyme, butter and salt.

Vegetable Curry with Rice

Hello everyone, I hope your Sunday is going well. I’m currently sitting by the window typing up today’s recipe. Another vegetarian meal I created using a range of green vegetables which are hopefully easy to find in the supermarkets. I kept the vegetables pretty simple, but you could always add some carrots, cauliflower, sweet potato or green peas. I really like this recipe because it can easily be adapted and its quick to make for any day of the week. I ate this curry with leftover white rice but you could try it with any other grain.

Vegetable Curry (serves 2)

Ingredients

1 tbsp butter/oil

1/2 tsp ground tumeric

1/4 tsp fresh/ground ginger

1 small chilli – finely diced

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp tomato puree

500ml vegetable stock

Large handful of kale – roughly chopped

1/2 broccoli – chopped and blanch for 5 minutes

1/2 pack green – trim the ends and slice in half

50g coconut cream

Method

  • Place a frying pan on a low heat and add the butter/oil, tumeric, giner, chilli and salt. Stir and cover with a lid for 2 minutes.
  • Add the puree and vegetable stock. Wash and prepare the vegetables, then add them to the pan mixing well and keep on a gentle simmer for 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are cooked.
  • Turn the heat down, stir in the coconut cream and serve hot.
