savoury rice

OnePotWonder: Chinese flavour ‘savoury rice’…

Today, I needed carbs. Just a bowl full of carbs.  I fried some chopped red pepper, a little ginger, a few spring onions… then threw in 225ml veg stock, 75g long grain Thai rice, a handful of spinach, a handful of cashew nuts, one small potato, quartered and sliced, a pinch of Chinese 5 spice, pinch of black pepper, pinch of ground coriander and a splash of tamari sauce.

Tasted surprisingly amazing! If you’re thinking the potato is a bit of a wild card, it’s really there to represent the slices of waterchestnut I would have added if I’d had them here… and to carb it up a bit more!

Some days, you just want to curl up on the sofa in your PJs and not move a muscle.  That’s why today, I was so glad I  found these in Sainsburys – gluten free & vegan millionaires shortbread! They were a much needed Saturday afternoon pick-me-up yesterday (with a mug of hot [dairy free] chocolate). Me and OH munched our way through the whole pack while the snow fell outside :)
