Prep time
Cook/wait time
Total time
With a kitchen being renovated (no stove, no tap, no bench top, really good!), I used only a steamer to make this easy meal for two.
Prepared by:
Recipe type: main
Cuisine: vegan
Serves: 2
You need
  • one cup of rice
  • 1 capsicum, sliced
  • 1 small white onion, sliced thinly
  • 1-1.5 clove of garlic, raw and grated (or less if you're less of a garlic lover ;-) )
  • a small hand of fresh mint leafs, chopped
  • olive oil
  • chilli salt or something similar spicy
To do
  1. steam the rice for 30 minutes (in the designated bowl, with 1 cup of water)
  2. after 22 minutes, add another steam basket, and put the capsicum and onion in it
  3. steam to the end of the 30 minutes
  4. in the meantime, grate the garlic
  5. when rice is ready, mix all cooked ingredients, add the chilli salt, raw garlic and mint, and pour a dash of olive oil over the top
  6. taste and tweak the hot stuff if you like :-)
