Courgette and Kale Pilaf

Serves: 4


300g basmati rice
50g vegan butter
2 onions, finely sliced
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp cumin
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Thumb-sized piece of ginger, finely chopped
1 courgette, sliced
2 tomatoes, diced
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp tomato puree in 600ml water
250g kale


Add the rice to a bowl, top with cold water and move the grains around until the water turns milky. Drain and repeat until the water is clear. Set the rice to one side.

Into a large saucepan with a lid, melt the butter and stir in the onions for 8 mins. Follow through with the spices, garlic and ginger. Cook for a further 3 mins. Next, pour in the courgette, tomatoes and lemon juice, cooking for a further 5 mins. Incorporate the basmati, mixing thoroughly to ensure the grains are coated. Finally, add the kale and season well.

Pour the stock into the pan, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to a simmer for 10 mins. Once 10 mins are up, remove the saucepan and leave the rice to cook in the steam for a further 10 mins.

Serve up and enjoy!
