250g easy cook long grain white rice
1 tsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion finely chopped
2 celery sticks thinly sliced
1 green pepper deseeded and chopped
2 handfuls mushrooms (cup or button) sliced
4 tomatoes chopped
250g frozen cooked peeled prawns defrosted
2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
2 tsp Cajun seasoning
½ tsp chilli powder
1 pinch ground black pepper
1. Put the rice into a large saucepan and cook in simmering water for 12-15 minutes, or according to
instructions on the packet, until tender. Drain well.
2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the onion and celery until softened, about
3-4 minutes. Add the green pepper, mushrooms, tomatoes and prawns and stir-fry for 3-4 more minutes.
3. Stir in the hot cooked rice, parsley, Cajun seasoning or paprika and chilli powder. Cook for 2 more
minutes, stirring all the time until everything is heated through. Check the seasoning, adding some pepper
and an extra pinch of chilli powder, if needed. Serve at once.
Tip 1: Use 150g chopped cooked chicken instead of prawns, if you like.
