    Peri peri prawns & vegetable rice

    • Low Fat
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes

    Serves: 2


    2 tsp sunflower or vegetable oil
    2 romano peppers, deseeded and thickly sliced
    ½ onion, roughly chopped
    1 courgette, chopped into small pieces
    ¼ tsp turmeric
    1½ tsp tomato paste
    125g long grain rice, rinsed until the water runs clear (not easy cook)
    400ml chicken or vegetable stock
    150g pack raw king prawns
    1½ tbsp Nando’s Medium Peri Peri Sauce
    ½ x 28g pack coriander or parsley, roughly chopped


    1. Heat the oil in a wide frying pan, then add the peppers and onion, and cook over a high heat for 2 minutes. Add the courgette and cook for 3 minutes more until it starts to soften.

    2. Stir in the turmeric and tomato paste, cook for a few seconds then stir in the rice and stock. Bring to the boil, put the lid on and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring a few times as it cooks to a paella-type consistency, with a little sauce surrounding tender rice. Add a splash more water if needed.

    3. Mix the prawns with the peri peri sauce, then scatter over the rice. Turn the heat down, cover and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the prawns are pink and opaque and all cooked through. Fork the prawns into the rice, scatter with the herbs to serve.
