veg and lentil pilaf ... innit

Lots of stuff happening this week.  Today, I was, unexpectedly, required to be available at work om Saturday... so, I turfed up.

I tried to speed this recipe up ny par-cooking the rice, and then adding it to the veg mix to finish.

Brown rice
red rice
olive oil
red pepper
mexican seasoning
lentils (tinned and drained)
vine tomatoes
lime juice


1.  Put brown rice, a handful of red rice - and enough water to cover + 1 inch into a cast iron pot.  Bring to the boil, cover and simmer.
2.  Put cherry tomatoes in a hot(ish) oven, after you have sploshed on a glug of olive oil, a twist of salt and a twist of pepper.
3.  Chop an onion, some mushrooms and a red pepper.  Sautee the onions in olive oil until a bit soft/
4.  Add mushrooms and pepper, stir around.  Add garlic and seasoning (I used mexican - not so much for it to be HOT, but just to add a depth of falvour).
5.  Drain par-cooked rice and add to veg. Stir around til all rice has a film of oil.
6.  Add chopped kale and some stock, simmer until done - stir occasionally.
7.  mix 3 tbsp of yogurt with the juice of a lime, 1 tbsp of olive oil, a crushed clove of garlic - salt and pepper to taste.

Serve/// admire, scoff.... gloat :)
