For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
This savoury rice is a tasty alternative to vegetables or potatoes, or you can just have it on its own as a complete meal. You can also add pretty much whatever extra vegetables or meats and fish that you want.
Here’s a few more ideas:
For Savoury Chicken Rice use a chicken stock cube instead of veg and either add some chopped cooked chicken a few minutes before the rice is cooked or if you are using raw chicken cut it into small pieces and cook it with the onions and peppers.
If you want Chilli Savoury Rice try adding some chilli powder instead of the curry powder, and if you like it hot add a chopped fresh chilli when you are cooking the onions and peppers.
For Vegetable Savoury Rice try to keep the vegetables slightly crispy so that they don’t turn into a mush in the rice. Any type of vegetable is suitable for this recipe including broccoli, cauliflower, courgettes, green beans and carrots.
When ever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Savoury Rice recipe.
