Finding interesting things to do with vegetables isn’t too hard, if you have the time and the will to try. Today I picked up some tender stem broccoli on the reduced aisle so hopefully I’ll do my bit for reducing food waste, something we could all bear in mind.
Ingredients: tender stem broccoli, button mushrooms, brown rice, half an onion, vegetable stock cube, slice of lemon, fresh parsley.
Start by frying your onion in a large pan, while boiling your (brown) rice in a vegetable stock cube.
Next, add your button mushrooms and broccoli to your frying pan. After a few minutes, transfer some of the stock cube water from your rice pan, to your vegetable pan. Let that create a little moisture in your vegetable pan, the stock water will probably sizzle a little bit- very exciting! Smells good.
Nearly there! All that’s left to do is dish up. I like the sandcastle effect when you fill a cup with rice and build – that’s right- a sandcastle on your plate- it looks pretty hey?
Tell me about your vegetarian and vegan recipes, I love learning new recipes! And follow me if you enjoy food and hate waste.
