This is a great picnic or summer lunch time recipe that sits fantastically alongside new potatoes and salads. I found this recipe in a newspaper years ago and have since lost the original, but it has now evolved into this mainstay of my summer repertoire.
This is my mum and dad's recipe, which is an old Indian favourite very popular in West Bengal during monsoon. It is traditionally eaten as warm comfort food on dark rainy days. Very easy to make and goes well with most things, including chips! Although you can make it with white rice, I use brown as it's healthier and suits my dietary requirements. The timing is not exact but it will take however long it takes to cook depending on the type of rice used.
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.
You can't fit any more vegetables into this delectable bake. Aubergine, potatoes, green pepper, onion, courgette, green beans, mushrooms and garlic are tossed with fresh herbs, passata and olive oil to make a fab vegetarian main. This feeds a large crowd, but is quite forgiving if you want to decrease the recipe for 4 or 8 people.
