A rice dish that can be eaten hot or cold. This recipe will serve four when bulked out with salad or other foods. Great for lunches to take to work. Use kidney beans or peas. Try using red rice found in supermarkets, its very chewy and high in protein.
- 1 tablespoon of Coconut oil
- 1 tsp of cumin seeds
- 1 tsp dried coriander
- 1tsp paprika
- 1 tsp of dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp chilli powder (hot or mild)
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder (you could try fresh garlic)
- 2 onions
- Grated carrot (optional)
- 200g cooked kidney beans or frozen peas

Boil the rice as the packet suggests…meanwhile
Add the oil to pan and heat until it starts to sizzle, turn down the heat and the cumin seeds and fry lightly for one minute.
Add the onions and grated carrot if using then fry for a minute or two until onions go soft.
Add the coriander, paprika, oregano, chilli powder and garlic powder and mix all ingredients well.
Next add in your freshly cooked red rice (or rice of choice) and stir fry all ingredients together for up to five minutes.
Serve immediately or save for cold dishes.
