Save on time and money this January by making one big pot of rice and then transforming it into five meals. Rice also freezes well so feel free to portion your rice and then defrost it overnight for dinner the next day. Note that while these recipes use different types of rice, you can easily substitute it with whatever’s in your pantry.
The addition of a few spices and pork rashers transforms this simple long-grain rice dish into something exotic.
Pork fillet with pepper sauce and rice
If your Janu-worry budget doesn’t extend to pork fillet, use chicken breasts instead.
Lentil and pea curry with wild rice
Wild rice has a lovely texture and goes well with any type of curry, but if you don’t have any at hand, any other rice will work just as well.
Brown rice and quinoa salad
Stretch that last cup of rice by adding quinoa and chickpeas to the mix.
Fragrant rice with bacon
This is probably the easiest meal you’ll whip up all year.
