This amount is for around 6-8 portions, we cooked more to eat this for three days.

You will need:

  • 1 red or white onion

  • 3-4 medium size carrots
  • 1 can of beans
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1 small can of corn
  • 2 tbs of olive oil
  • seasoning: salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, curry

Instructions:

  1. Start with boiling rice as usual;
  2. While rice is boiling, start heating the frying pan on medium level with olive oil, chop onions and add to the pan, then add garlic and chopped chilli pepper. If you prefer more spicy meals then add chilli seeds as well.
  3. When onions have turned little golden, add grated carrots to the frying pan.
  4. Next you need to chop bell peppers and squash, and mix them in the frying pan as well.
  5. Rinse corn, beans and chickpeas under cold water.
