This is pretty much effortless to rustle up when you’re just cooking for yourself – but would make an awesome side dish too. It’s a one-pot-wonder that’s healthy and tasty. Quantities below are for one person, scale up if you’re feeding more mouths.
75g Jasmine Rice (dry weight)
1 red pepper (chopped)
1 stick of celery (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp chopped fresh ginger
2tbsp green peas (I used frozen)
1 lemon grass stalk
225ml (approx) hot vegetable stock
1/2 tbsp GF tamari sauce
- In a small saucepan, heat the pepper, celery, ginger, peas and lemongrass in a little oil for a few minutes until everything begins to soften
- Add the stock, followed by the rice
- Stir, then cover and allow to simmer gently for 10-12 minutes, until all stock has been absorbed and the rice is tender
- Stir in the tamari sauce, and serve
I used Jasmine rice because it tastes amazing, and cooks really quickly. You could make this with another type of rice, but remember to allow longer for it to cook.
