Tomato Rice

Preparation Time: 15 minutes


Cooking Time: 30 minutes


A great way to pack more vegetables into your diet, this easy tomato rice dish is ideal for adding leftover vegetables from your fridge. This recipe can also be made in bulk for a healthy meal-prep option!


  1. Cover and soak the basmati rice in boiled hot water and set aside.
  2. Chop the garlic, onion and pepper and gently fry in the olive oil in a large deep pan on a medium heat.
  3. Add the chopped cherry tomatoes and tinned tomatoes, paprika and chilli flakes.
  4. Drain the rice and add to the pan, stirring to combine, and allow to simmer on a medium heat.
  5. Dissolve the stock cube in a pint of boiling water. Stir and pour over the rice - the liquid should just cover the rice. Add a little more water if required.
  6. Season with salt and pepper, turn the heat to low and cover with a lid.
  7. Simmer for around 10 minutes.
  8. After 10 minutes, stir in the frozen peas.
  9. Leave to simmer for a further 10 minutes before removing the lid, stirring everything and checking that the rice is soft.
  10. If the rice is still firm or has too much of a bite in the centre, place the lid back over the pan and allow to simmer for another 10 minutes.
  11. Once the rice is cooked through, finely chop the fresh coriander and stir through the rice dish.
  12. Serve and enjoy!


Top Tips...

  • If you find that you have added too much water, remove the lid to allow steam to escape and the water should slowly evaporate during the simmering process.
  • To increase the portion of vegetables in this dish, add grated carrot, sweetcorn or your choice of vegetables.
  • We love to serve this dish with a tablespoon of natural yoghurt, soy yoghurt or crème fraiche for a creamy finish.
  • This dish is a great option for meal prep; increase the portions made and store in airtight containers in the fridge for up to three days!
