1 PAN DISH - Red rice with sun dried tomatoes and home grown courgettes

On a rainy day like today who wants to cook? I'd rather stay under a blanket, laden with cats, tea in one hand, book in the other. So I just popped all of this into a pan, added stock to cover and let it simmer away.....done.


1 large onion, sliced

2 large courgettes, cut into half moons

1/2 cup red carmargue rice

The leaves from 3 or 4 cavolo nero stalks

3 garlic cloves, sliced

5 sundried tomatoes, sliced

1 tablespoon stock powder


Salt, to taste

Add all of the ingredients to your pan

Pour in enough water so the ingredients are just covered

Bring to the boil on a high heat then reduce to a simmer

Add a little hot water if the pan dries out too much (I keep a full kettle on stand by for dishes like this)

Cook for around 30-40 minutes until the rice is cooked through

Serve....it's that simple!!!
