Put In Your Trolley
250g basmati rice
400g special mixed frozen vegetables (cauliflower/carrot.)
A generous sprinkling of of raisins
1 vegetable stock cube
2 tbsp korma curry paste (or any you have lingering in the cupboard.)
a generous handful of roasted salted cashew nuts
1 egg (Free Range OBVS.)
Low Cal Cooking Spray
Boil a kettle full of water. Find a large microwaveable bowl and pile in the rice, frozen vegetables and the raisins.
Pour in 600ml/1 Pint of water into said bowl and crumble in one stock cube. Spoon in the curry paste and stir till all combined. Cover the bow with cling film but leave a small gap on one side. (This is to allow the steam out.) Cook on full power for 12 minutes. If your microwave is less than 850 watts leave on for another two minutes.
Remove from the microwave and stand, still covered for 5 minutes to allow the cooking to complete.
Whilst the rice continues to cook, fry an egg sunny side up with the low cal cooking spray. Whilst this is frying also fry the onion. Fluff up the rice, stir through the onion, scatter with cashews and top with the egg.
Numbers if you’re bothered
This comes to 305 calories, and then egg is 70(ish) so you’re looking at around 375 per portion which is perfect for a breakfast that will sustain you through till lunchtime.
I recommend reading The Fault in Our Stars. For some reason I think this recipe and that (fantastic) book is perfect combo.
