This sticky rice dish is full of fresh flavours, the sweetness of the peppers, the kick of the chorizo, and the meatiness of the prawns.
Again, it's a no effort, throw it all in approach, all in onepot. Lots of vegetables:
- Tomatoes: A couple of extras thrown in with the required tin (with lovely Vitamin C, Vit A and antioxidants)
- Courgettes: not on the recipe, but an added bonus! (Potassium, Vit A, Manganese )
- Peppers: I used 3 red ones (9 x more Carotine don't ya know! and 3 x the Vit C of your average orange)
- and I threw in a load of red chilli (All the good'uns: Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, Vit A, B & C) and a good dose of humble garlic (lowers cholesterol, keeps colds away and is an aphrodisiac!)
Fry them off, chuck in the water, rice and the tinned tomatoes
(Also added tarragon and a good lot of Paprika) Cover and leave.
Literally just chill out for 12-15mins. Chuck in the prawns. Give it a stir.
Tear up some herbs and chuck them in.
All the lovely liquid cooks into the rice, and what you end up with is a sticky risotto-like mix. Wonderful.
I had it with some naan bread, but it doesn't really need it. In fact it doesn't really need the prawns- you could get rid of them and the chorizo and just use aubergine. Or just double the chorizo. I'd defiantly add the extra chilli/ paprika though.
Hangover: Cured. (And there's some left over for lunch)
