Ingredients for 4 pers.:

  • 300 gr basmati rice
  • 1 pak choi
  • 250 gr wild mushrooms
  • 250 gr cherry tomatoes
  • 3 spring onions
  • ½ red chili pepper
  • Fresh ginger
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 block vegetable broth
  • 3 table spoon of soy sauce

How to prepare it:

Fill a pan with water and put it on the stove. Make sure it contains enough water for the rice to boil in.

Cut the mushrooms into small slices. Chop the cherry tomatoes in half. Remove the leaves of the pak choi and chop the cabbage into blocks of about 0.5 cm. Chop the leaves as well. Cut the spring onions into small rings. Cut the red chili pepper, remove the seeds and chop the pepper.

Remove the skin of the garlic, cut the garlic in half and remove the root. Cut a piece of about 3 cm from the ginger, remove the skin.

Once the water for the rice is boiling you can add the vegetable broth and the rice. Boil the rice for 8 minutes.

Put a frying pan on the stove, add some olive oil. Squeeze the garlic into the frying pan, add the red chili pepper, the cabbage of the pak choi and the mushrooms. Grate the ginger into the pan and stir everything whilst you are baking it.  After 5 minutes you can add the soy sauce, the tomatoes, the spring onions and the pak choi leaves.

Keep stirring. Once the rice is ready, rinse down the rice and put it on the plates. Add the vegetables to the rice and you are ready to go. Easy peasy to make after a busy day in the office 😉
