Equally good hot or cold, this curried rice with chicken and vegetables can be both a warm dinner and a cold lunch the next day. Packed with vegetables, this curried rice dish is low in fat and high in health.

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion (small, chopped)
  • 5 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 400 grams basmati rice
  • salt
  • 2 tablespoons curry
  • 1 tablespoon saffron
  • 300 grams fresh mushrooms (chopped)
  • 2 leeks (diced)
  • 1 cup peas (frozen)
  • 1 carrot (finely grated)
  • 1 cup pitted black olives (sliced)

Directions

  1. Boil the chicken breasts in a pan of salted water. Drain, cool, and shred.
  2. In another wider and taller pan, heat olive oil on low heat. Add chopped onion, and 2 garlic cloves. When the onion is translucent, add the rice, and stir occasionally. Add a little salt, curry, and saffron, and stir. When the rice starts to get transparent, add 3 times the amount of boiling water as the rice. Simmer, check the seasoning. Once cooked drain in a colander, and rinse with cold water, drain again. Set aside.
  3. Heat a very large skillet with a dash of olive oil. Add the remaining garlic cloves, then the mushrooms, followed by the peas. Simmer. When the mushrooms are cooked, add the leek, and mix.
  4. Finally, add the carrots and the olives, get the seasoning right with a little salt, mix, and remove from heat.
  5. In large bowl, serve the rice, shredded chicken, and vegetables. Mix gently.
  6. Serve hot, warm, or cold.

This frozen tart is a welcome finish to a heavy meal. The flavors are mild yet the green tea invigorating. Resist the temptation to sweeten it beyond the recipe instructions. Allow the cream and cheese to cleanse and cool the palate. Of course, this tart could also be the main dish on a warm day. It brings a good amount of protein and calcium along with its richness!
