About this recipe:I discovered this recipe by accident but have been making it ever since for a quick, easy lunch or dinner for one. The tomatoes and spinach soften easily in the microwave and the cheese melts to create a sauce and give the consistency of risotto.

Transfer the brown rice to a microwave safe dish. Add tomatoes, spinach and mozarella cubes. Mix well.
Cover the bowl with a piece of damp kitchen roll. Microwave for 2 minutes, remove and stir well. Season well with salt and pepper and eat immediately.
Add whatever else you have on hand that cooks easily, such as mushrooms, spring onions or fresh herbs.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
