Time Taken:

1 hour

Portions:

3-4

Ingredients:

2 garlic cloves

2 vegetable stock cubes

1 brown onion

Half a mug of frozen peas

1 large courgette

1 pack of green beans

Large handful of fresh mint

300g long grain rice

600ml boiling water

Salt and pepper

Method:

Peel and crush the garlic. Dice the onion. Dice the courgette. Fry all together in a large frying pan in 2 Tsp butter on a low heat for 10-12 minutes until softened.


Chop the ends off the green beans and then cut into thirds. To the pan add the boiling water, 2 stock cubes, green beans, salt and pepper to season and the rice. Simmer on a low heat for 15 minutes.


Finely chop all of the mint. Add the peas and chopped mint to the pan and stir thoroughly. 


Continue simmering for 8-12 minutes until the rice is soft and slightly "sticky". (If the rice seems to become a little dry, just add more water so it can be absorbed.) Serve!
