Ingredients
  • Brown rice - 50g/2oz
  • Cold water - 500ml/18fl oz
  • Coconut oil - 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic - 1 clove, crushed, peeled and finely chopped
  • Ginger - 1 teaspoon freshly grated peeled root
  • Red chilli - 1 medium, deseeded and finely chopped
  • Butternut squash - 100g/3½oz, peeled, deseeded and cut into 1cm/½ inch dice
  • Carrot - ½, peeled and cut into 1cm/½ inch dice
  • Vegetable bouillon stock powder - ½ tablespoon
  • Boiling water - 400ml/14fl oz
  • Savoy cabbage - 1 handful, shredded, washed and drained
  • Shiitake mushrooms - 4 fresh, rinsed and sliced
  • Black pepper - 1 pinch
  • Olive oil - 1 teaspoon
  • Coriander - 1 very small bunch, leaves and stems finely chopped, to garnish

Steps

  • Wash the brown rice well in a colander until the water runs clear. Place the rice in a medium pan and add the cold water. Bring to the boil, then cover with a tight- fitting lid, turn the heat down to low and cook the rice in its steam for 15–20 minutes. Remove the lid and fluff the grains with a fork.
  • Heat a large wok (or pan) over a high heat and add the coconut oil. As the oil starts to melt, swirl it around the wok and then quickly add the garlic, ginger and chilli and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the butternut squash and carrot and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Tip in the cooked rice, add the bouillon powder and boiling water and bring back to the boil. Cook on a medium heat, boiling the rice and vegetables for 12 minutes. Add the shredded cabbage and cook for 3 minutes, then add the shiitake mushrooms and cook for 1 minute.
  • Season to taste with black pepper and a small drizzle of olive oil. Garnish with the coriander and serve.
