Aromatic spices are at the heart and soul of this little number. Within our blend of spices we have cinnamon, coriander, ginger, fennel and cumin along with coriander leaf, if you don't have our special blend you could substitute for garam masala with a little extra cinnamon.

150g – basmati rice
½ medium onion – diced
5 carrots – peeled & diced
3 cloves garlic – peeled & finely chopped
3 tsp aromatic spice blend
1 tin chickpeas
1 tin chopped tomatoes
200ml fruit juice (or juice of 1 fresh orange)
8 dried apricots – chopped

Optional Ingredients

Optional – yoghurt, flatbreads hummus

Recipe Instructions

Rinse rice through with cold water then boil until cooked (after 10 – 12 mins it should be soft to touch), drain & reserve.

In a saucepan over a medium heat, sweat onion with a little cooking oil until soft & translucent (2 – 3 mins).

Add garlic to onions and cook out for 1 minute before adding aromatic blend – stir continuously to avoid too much smoke – turn down heat if necessary.
 
Add carrots, chopped tomatoes, fruit juice and chopped apricots to the saucepan bring slowly to a boil then simmer with a lid on until carrots are tender (12 – 15 mins), adding a touch of water if things are looking a little dry.
