This recipe is exactly what it says it is, a quick and tasty meal even the laziest one of us can make. 

Everyone gives brown rice a bad rap, but i kind of like it. Yes it tastes different but everything will taste different until you get used to it and manipulate it to your taste. This was dinner for 2 and did i mention super healthy?

For this i used some left over plain cooked brown rice...

2 Cups Cooked Brown Rice
2 Beef Franks (Chopped)
1/2 Onion, Medium Carrot, Green Beans, Medium Tomato, Yellow Pepper (Chopped)
Sliced Green Pepper & Spring Onion
1/2 cup Chicken Stock
Olive Oil (Zero Calorie) Cooking Spray
1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
Salmon Steaks
Salt & Pepper
1 Teaspoon Oriental 5 Spice
Chopped Dried Garlic
1 Seasoning Cube

Mix balsamic vinegar with a pinch of salt, pepper and garlic and allow to sit for 30 minutes.

Spray some olive oil into your pan/pot and soften your onions until translucent, about 2 - 3 minutes.

Add chopped sausages and cook down for an extra minute.

Add vegetables and season with spices.

We don't wan't to cook the vegetables for more than 30 - 45 seconds so it doesn't "die" completely before the cooking process is done.

Add the rice and mix gently with a fork so as not to mush it all up, pour in chicken stock and turn down the heat. Allow the rice to cook through with the pot uncovered, it shouldn't need more than 5 minutes.

While that is going, spray some more olive oil into a non-stick pan and sear your salmon for 2 minutes on each side. If your steak is pretty thick, turn down the heat, add a few drops of water into the pan and cover it. The steam build up will fish cooking it through.

Garnish with chopped parsley and a slice of lemon if you please. Count the minutes, you have dinner on your plate in less than 20 minutes.


PS. I got my mojo back, no more long absences...
