This recipe is one I have been thinking about making for quite some time. My beautiful Mother-in-law recently introduced me to the convenience of using ready-made brown rice, I now often use it to accompany the slow cooker or stir-fry dinners I make, it’s a great time saver especially on work nights. I have been using Sun Rice fragrant Brown Rice in 2 1/2 Minutes 450g, you’ll find it in the same aisle as uncooked rice.
You will need:
450g family size Sun Rice fragrant brown rice in 2 1/2 minutes
150g diced bacon fried off in pan
1 1/2 cups frozen mixed corn and peas, cooked according to packet instructions
1 carrot grated
1 Lebanese cucumber, diced
1/2 red capsicum, diced
2 sticks celery, diced
1 green onion, diced
1/2 cup craisins (dried cranberries)
1/3 cup French dressing
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Combine rice, bacon, vegetable ingredients and craisins.
Mix dressing ingredients well to combine and pour over rice salad.
You can enjoy this as a meal just by itself or you can use it as a side with your favourite meat, totally up to you.
It will keep in the fridge for 3 days.
Enjoy. We had leftovers of it tonight with a BBQ chicken and garden salad.
