Family Vegetable Rice Dinner

Food Fantasies…….of a yummy mummy

My first article on fabulous Feeling Fab! Awesome! Thank you Angie, Ayshea and the Feeling Fab crew….I am excited to be part of the growing community.

This article features a tasty, simple family recipe of mixed vegetable rice, served with some roasted fish

For this recipe, you need:

  • 250g Golden Basmati rice
  • 1 Red bell pepper (sliced)
  • Frozen mixed vegetables
  • Cooked and peeled prawns (frozen or fresh)
  • Olive oil
  • ½ medium size onion (chopped)
  • 1 scotch bonnet pepper (optional)

Herbs, Spices and Seasoning: 1 clove garlic (grated), small chopped ginger (grated), 1 sprig thyme chopped, curry powder-mild or medium (1 tsp), black pepper (dash), white pepper (dash), ½ tsp. turmeric, ½ tsp. oregano, few chopped fresh parsley (alternatively ½ tsp parsley) 2 bay leaves, some fish seasoning liquid stock, and salt to taste

TIP: Depending on the size of your family, you may need to adjust the quantities. In the absence of the prawns, use just the mixed vegetables or you could add some seafood varieties if there are no allergies in the family.


Put rice in a pot and fill with cold water so that it covers the surface.

Drizzle a little olive oil, 2 bay leaves and a dash of salt

Bring to boil until almost cooked. Take off heat and drain off any liquid

In a bowl, add the mixed vegetables and season with grated ginger, grated garlic, drizzle very little olive oil, 1 sprig thyme (chopped), black pepper (dash), white pepper (dash), ½ tsp. turmeric, ½ tsp. oregano, few chopped fresh parsley (alternatively ½ tsp parsley)

Heat up a pan with 2tbsp olive oil.

Add the seasoned mixed vegetables, followed by the prawns and sauté for about 5-7mins. Add a little fish stock, then the sliced red bell pepper and curry powder (mild or medium)

Finally, add the almost cooked rice to soak up the flavours. Drizzle a little more olive oil if dry or add more liquid fish stock. Mixed properly and simmer for about 5-10mins. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

Ready to ready to enjoy 🙂

Tasty, simple, quick ….

Happy spicing and cooking!

Blessings and love
