Savoury Rice

One of my favourite things to eat as a kid was Batchelor's Savoury Rice! We usually had it on a Saturday with beefburgers or those lovely Steak Grill things that were probably not steak at all! I decided to have a go at making my own version & after a few attempts I got it right & just the smell brought back memories! This is the kind of side dish that goes great with pretty much anything!

To make it easier & quicker I have used microwavable rice, but it still won't break the bank!


Serves 4 Approx 64p per person

Prep Time 10 mins Cooking time 20 mins





1 250g pack microwavable rice (long grain or basmati is fine)

1 red pepper, diced

1 yellow pepper, diced

125g mushrooms, sliced

1 bunch spring onions, sliced

300ml veg stock

1 tsp turmeric

salt & pepper

Heat about 1 ½ tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat.

Add the peppers & cook for about 5 minutes until starting to soften, then add the onions & mushrooms.

Once all the veg is nice & soft & slightly coloured stir in the rice & the turmeric making sure everything gets coated.

Pour in the stock & season with salt & pepper, stir & allow to simmer for 8-10 minutes.
