There are many different types of vegetables that can be used to make savoury rice. The most boring savoury rice is the one that is made with frozen mixed vegetables. Frozen diced veggies may add colour to the rice but it does not add much flavour or nutritional value. This can be served with grilled chicken, fish or as a stuffing for roast chicken.
4 cups cooked Spekko Brown Rice
600g cubed butternut
1 medium onion, sliced
1 punnet baby button mushrooms
200g oyster mushrooms
45ml dark soy sauce
100ml roasted peanuts
4 garlic cloves, crushed
30g fresh coriander
2 green chillies, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt to season
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Slice the oyster and baby button mushrooms. Place butternut cubes in a roasting pan and season lightly with salt. Coat the cubes in a little oil. Pour over 50ml water and roast until the butternut is tender. Heat oil in a wok and stir fry the mushrooms in small batches. Do not add salt as this will draw out the water and this will cause the mushrooms to boil. Heat oil in a wok and fry onion slices until translucent. Add garlic, chilli, roasted butternut cubes, and mushrooms. Stir gently. Pour in the dark soy sauce and check the seasoning. Mix in the Spekko Brown Rice, sugar and lemon juice. Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. Garnish with chopped coriander.
