Ingredients List

Serves 4
  • cup rice
  • bunch fresh coriander
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • cup tomato passata
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground tumeric
  • lime
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno - pickled & chopped


1. Put pan on the heat (medium), add rice to brown for 2 mins. Make up the stock. 

2. Add minced garlic, and a tiny bit of stock to the rice – cook for 5 mins.

3. Add the cumin, tumeric, rest of the stock and passata and reduce to a simmer for 15 mins until the rice has absorbed the liquid or if you are using brown rice, keep adding hot water and cook for 30 mins.

4. Remove from the heat and let sit to cool.

5. Stir through chopped up jalapenos and top with cilantro (coriander) and squeeze over the lime to your taste.

– You can add extra virgin olive oil at this stage if you want but it is delicious without.
