I missed eating rice.
So this dish came about.
He likes rice when its served actually "in" part of the meal - just not separately.
I have my rice fix. He doesn't eat plain rice. Everyone happy :-)
I love how simple this meal is & yet its wonderfully satisfying. It is also quick to make which means I can get it done no matter what the day has delivered.
It reheats well & since we're a home of leftover lovers it suits us quite nicely.
It could easily be doubled if you need extra.
In a large stock pot combine:
1 chopped onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic (or 2 squashed garlic cloves)
1 chopped green capsicum
1 chopped carrot
1 corn cob, kernels removed
1 tin drained chickpeas
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 chopped medium size sweet potato
800g tin diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon each: thyme, paprika, marjoram, sage
Cover, bring to the boil & then simmer for 15 minutes until the sweet potato is tender but not fallen apart.
Yep, its really that easy!
