Food, glorious food!

Hello me' darlings! Today my mind keeps wandering to food...A couple of weeks ago I found this recipe, made it, tried it, and I'm hooked. It's super quick and easy, and perfect for those lazy hazy summer days...we're still hoping those days are heading this way...But for now, we'll enjoy lovely lazy suppers anyway...

Fruity Rice Salad with a bit of a bite!

You'll need...

♥ Rice...One 250g pack of Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Rice,       mixed with another 250g pack of Uncle Ben's Wholegrain Rice. By all means cook your rice from scratch, but this express variety was super quick, and just as good! Prepare to pack instructions...Set aside.

Mix together in food processor, the following:

♥ A large handful of spinach leaves...
♥ 2 Large red, deseeded chillies...I use tiny Birdseye chillies    for extra warmth!
♥ A bunch of trimmed salad onions (spring onions)
♥ A small handful of fresh coriander leaves
♥ Juice of one lime (Tip: Warm lime in microwave for a few seconds, then squeeze juice out. You'll get twice as much from your lime!)
♥ A splash of extra virgin olive oil
♥ Salt and pepper to taste
Blitz to make a paste...

♥ Four stoned peaches, cut into chunks

Combine the hot rice, peaches and paste in a large bowl.

♥ Add some cubed feta just before serving.

{Now, next time I make it, I'm also going to add some pine nuts. I think this extra crunch would go lovely with it!}


Happy days!!!

  2. Hi Tania...The salad looks delish! Your table is so beautiful! I think it would make any food look appetizing! ♥♥♥

  3. Mouth-wateringly scrumptious recipe! Rice - in all its many varieties - is a firm favourite of mine. I can't wait to give your recipe a spin.
