This dish started out as Feijoada, but transformed into a rice dish as I realised that I didn't have any black beans, did have tinned jackfruit and also had 2 kids who wanted to eat rice.
The Feijoada will have to wait - but this Dirty Rice is a winner for sure! I was inspired by the recipe by momsdinner.net and adapted this to make it vegan friendly. Filled with nutrients, it is a one-pot dish packed with flavour and easy to make.
Recipe (serves 4):
1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium white onion, diced
1 stick celery, diced
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tin jackfruit, drained and cut into 1" pieces
1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp garlic granules
1 tsp onion flakes
Pinch Cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
1/2 tsp mixed herbs
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt (optional - taste before adding as may not be necessary!)
1.5 cups vegetable stock in boiling water
1 cup chopped tomatoes (you could use tinned)
1 cup white rice (I used basmati)
1 tin red kidney beans, drained
