A very simple, easy to make dish, which is very fast, tasty and filling at the same time – around thirty minutes to make so it’s perfect for those days that you don’t want to spend ages in the kitchen, but still have a home-made dinner, that’s fresh, full of flavour and fun!
Using the basic Risotto for a base, this dish is a flavoured version, great fresh from the pan – serve hot straight from the pan.
To Serve 4
225g Mixed Long-Grain Rice
350ml Vegetable Stock
1 Garlic Clove, peeled and crushed
350g Tomatoes, diced
4 Sun Dried Tomatoes, drained and diced
700g Mixed Blanched Beans
12 Pitted Black Olives, halved
Salt and Pepper
1. Cook the rice in the stock for around twenty minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender but not a mush.
2. In a frying pan, heat the Oil, then add the Garlic and cook for one to two minutes, until softened.
3. Add the Chopped Tomatoes and the Rice into the pan. Cook, stirring all the time over a gentle heat for three to four minutes. Add the Blanched Beans and Olives, then cook for another minute over a high heat, until piping hot throughout.
Serve fresh from the pan, along with some fresh crusty rolls.
