When you are stuck for time, this is a quick and easy recipe to help you eat more veggies. A great recipe to try for Veganuary. I love having this when it’s really cold outside as its very warming. You can mix it up by using any other veggies you like. I prefer making mine with chickpeas.
Veggie Rice Stew
- 1 chopped onion
- 2 cloves of garlic

- 1 small sweet potato
- Half a cauliflower or tin of chickpeas
- 1 cup of brown rice

- Pinch of chilli powder (optional)
- Veggie stock cube (I use Kallo)
- Saute the onion and cook until soft.
- Add in chopped garlic to the onions and cook for 2 more mins.
- Add in chopped tomatoes and some water to cover and cook for a few mins.

- In a separate pan half cook the brown rice then add to the veggies.
