Vegetarian Pilaf

JUNE 2016


Hi and welcome to our vegetarian kitchen. This week our recipe is "PILAF" which is served in many countries on the "Med" but ours, of course, will be vegetarian. "PILAF" is rice, usually cooked in meat stock with the addition of meat and vegetables. We use Quorn "Chicken style pieces". It is a complete meal which only requires a side salad to accompany this.


(serves 4 to 6)

Quorn chicken style pieces(350g)

8 oz Long Grain Rice (250g approx)

3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil

Half teaspoon Cumin Powder

500ml Vegetable Stock (GREEN OXO CUBE)

2 Courgettes (cut in rings)

1 Red or Green Pepper (chop into small pieces)

4 Fresh tomatoes (chopped)

1 Onion (finely chopped)

2 cloves Garlic (crushed or chopped)

Parsley or Coriander to garnish

Black Pepper

Salt to taste

Heat oil in large saucepan, add onion,garlic, Quorn pieces,tomatoes and fry gently, add courgette slices and stir. Add chopped pepper and fry for about 4 mins. Add vegetable stock, stir, and bring to boil. Add rice and stir in Cumin Powder, pepper and salt. Reduce heat, put on lid and simmer for about 20 minutes. Put in one large bowl, sprinkle parsley or coriander on top and let everyone help themselves. Serve with a green side salad.

ENJOY Your taste of the "Med".
