Bean a Bit Busy

but here is my new favourite recipe

I have no idea where the inspiration for this creation came from but I love it! Any seasonings could be swapped for the peri peri sauce(I bought Woolworth's Select brand and love that too)

1/3 cup wild rice boiled for about 20 minutes and then a cup of basmati rice(any rice will do) added and cooked until tender. Drain very well and leave as long as possible to dry out as with regular fried rice.

Finely chop and sauté in a large fry-pan...

an onion
half a red capsicum
a stalk of celery
two cloves of garlic
a cup of chopped spinach/silverbeet/kale

Either drain a tin of your favourite beans or use 2 cups of ready cooked beans(I used tinned 4 bean mix this time and home cooked white beans last time) and heat them through, season with either 2-3 tablespoons of peri peri sauce/soy sauce etc etc AND the juice of one beautiful home grown lemon(if possible)

add your cold, dry rice and mix well until it is hot, check seasonings and add chopped fresh herbs.

It's a very versatile recipe that has been around since Adam I expect but there is a good reason for's cheap, tasty and nourishing and you can mix and swap to use whatever you have on hand.

All is well here, blogging mojo has gone AWOL again but we're all well

Big Love as Jamie Oliver says!
