It’s been a while since we posted a recipe post and so I thought I’d kick start the posts with a simple yet delish dish. This recipe is so quick and easy you could do it with your eyes closed. I first discovered it on a new app I got for my phone called ‘Veg Web’ and it’s becoming a firm favourite in my repertoire. Try it out for yourself – you won’t be disappointed.
What you need:
1 1/2 Cups of basmati rice
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 cups of vegetable broth (or veggie stock!)
1/2 head of shredded cabbage
2 Onions, sliced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
3 (10 ounce) cans of mock duck, sliced
1/2 can coconut milk
2 tablespoons of curry powder
1/4 soy sauce
How you do it:
1. In a saucepan heat 2 tablespoons of oil and add the basmati rice. Cook until light brown (be careful not to burn it- no one likes crusty rice!) Add the vegetable broth/ stock and cook until done. Approx. 15-20 minutes.
2. In a large pan, heat the remainder of the oil. Add the shredded cabbage and the onions and saute for around 3-5 minutes until slightly brown. Add the garlic and saute for approx. 1 minute.
3. Add the mock duck, curry powder, and coconut milk and cook on high until thickened.
4. Stir in the soy sauce and serve over rice.
And that’s it! I was surprised myself as to how simple yet tasty this was. I cooked up a batch and kept it covered in the fridge and took it to work for a few days for lunch.
