Meatless Monday : Indian Rice Bowl


Quick to make, healthy and delicious this makes great lunch.  You could use fresh vegetables but frozen will make this quicker to prepare.  Alternatively you could use left over veg from the previous evening's meal. 

Indian Rice Bowl
Serves 2

You will need
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, peeled and chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp chilli
150g organic brown rice
1/2 tsp salt
cup of frozen veg (I used mixed carrots, peas, sweetcorn and red pepper)

Place the rice in a saucepan and cover with water.  Bring to the boil and reduce heat to simmer for 25 minutes until the rice is tender. Drain excess water.

Heat the oil and cook the onion over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and spices and continue for a further minute adding a little water if you need to.  Add the rice, salt, frozen vegetables and just a little water. Heat through and divide between two bowls.  

Garnish with coriander.

Enjoy
