In this robust rice dish, a mix of red kidney beans, continental sausage and mushrooms is quickly prepared, then left to bake in the oven. This hearty dish needs just a salad to accompany it. Delicious!
Try some of the more unusual cultivated or exotic mushrooms in the pilaf. * For extra flavour, replace 150ml of the vegetable stock with dry cider or white wine.
Rice sold as ‘easy-cook’ surprisingly takes longer to cook than basmati rice and loses much of its natural aroma. So if you find plain boiled rice tricky to cook, make a pilaf or a stir-fry to be sure of perfect fluffy grains.
This has now become a regular meal in my house. First few times I made it I misread the instructions. This didn't really affect the outcome. I use veggie sausage instead of Frankfurters - 13 Jul 2010
