High Protein Mexican Fried Rice
April 10, 2016
What has come over me, another veggie recipe! This one, although it is designed to be a side dish, could quite easily act as the main event, especially if you are a vegetarian as it’s surprisingly high in protein. How? Well that’s all down to Blend Bros very tasty high protein savoury blend. It’s full of flavour, but is also enriched with pea protein, thus boosting the overall protein content. As always with my recipes, its incredibly easy to make and you can even use up some left over rice, or cook some in advance so you can whip up this dish even quicker at meal times! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
- Prep: 10 mins
- Cook: 10 mins
- Yields: 1-2 servings
1 tsp oil (I like to cook with coconut oil)
1In a large frying pan heat the oil on a medium heat. Then add the onion and pepper and cook for a couple of minutes until soft.
2Then add the tomatoes and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. If your rice is hot then you can remove the pan from the heat and stir it in. If it’s cold then leave the pan on the heat until the rice has warmed through fully.
3Finally, remove the pan from the heat and add the Blend Brothers Mexican Savoury Blend along with the water and give it a stir.
4It’s now ready to serve with whatever you like! I served mine with some baked chicken thighs and some salad.
