I walked into the Supermarket this morning with just over €4 to make dinner for 4 people and got ingredients to make a really tasty rice stir fry dish. It is tasty, high in fibre, low in calories and high in nutrition so it ticks all the boxes. Easy to make, super tasty, cheap and really good for you. It will keep in the fridge for 3 days and will work great for lunch eaten cold.
500g pre cooked brown basmati rice - €1.30
1 bag of stir-fry veg (I got a mix of beansprouts with broccoli, scallions, some red onion and grated carrot) - €1.50
150g mushrooms - €1.20
1 tin of bake beans - €0.29
3 tbsp tamari -
1-2 tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
Chili flakes to serve
Slice your mushrooms into bitesize pieces.
Drain and rinse the tomato sauce off you beans.
Heat a non-stick pan on a high heat till it gets nice and hot.
Reduce the heat to medium/hot temperature and add your mushrooms.
Cook for 2 minutes, stirring a couple of times.
Add the bag of stir-fry veg and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring regularly.
Add the rice, ensure to break up any clumps of rice from the pack, and mix it all through.
Heat for a minute.
Add the curry powder, smoked paprika and a good pinch of chilli flakes and mix through.
Serve and enjoy!
