This One-Pot Spicy Vegetable Rice is our go to favourite mid-week dinner. 3o minutes & one pot is all that is standing between you & a big bowl full of deliciously spiced, flavourful rice studded with sweet, soft veggies.
250g | 1 ¼uncooked long grain rice, white or brown, standard, basmati or jasmine is all fine
600mls | 2½cupswater, plus more if needed
Heat the olive oil in a large pan over a medium heat.
Saute the onions until translucent. If you do not wish to use oil then use can dry fry them or use a drop of water instead.
Add the carrots, garlic and bell peppers and continue cooking for a few minutes.
Add the rice, tomatoes, peas, spices, seasoning and water.
Cook until the liquid starts to bubble, give it a real good stir, turn down low, cover with a lid and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, stirring occasionally. If it gets to the stage where the water is absorbed and the rice isn't quite tender, you can boil a kettle and add another ¼ cup or so of water to finish it off.
