Congratulations to our winners Patchouli and Lauren McGee. So many fantastic recipes but these two really caught our judges eyes. I think they sound great too and I’ll be trying them both and writing them up soon. And probably a couple of others as well 🙂 I’ve got some more great competitions coming your way in the next month or so – can’t wait. I LOVE GIVING STUFF AWAY!
Australia Day is a day for celebrating all the things we love about being Australian, like sandy beaches, lamb chops, didgeridoos, the Anzacs, Kingswood Country and Kylie Minogue in hot pants.
Or, if your prefer, Hugh Jackman in hot pants.
And BBQ’s with mates.
Because nothing says Australian like standing around a ridiculously hot BBQ on a ridiculously hot day. It’s perfect weather to cook outside, under the patio, with your feet in the kids’ wading pool. It’s the stuff that’s made this country great.
And here’s a recipe to help give you more time for the important stuff this Australia Day.
If you take out the time it takes the rice cooker to prepare the rice this recipe takes less than five minutes to put together. And I mean much less – maybe three minutes. This makes it the perfect accompaniment to your Australia Day BBQ because you aren’t wasting drinking time cooking.
You will need:
1.5 cups SunRice brown rice, cooked
300g can of beans (butter, kidney, whatever takes your fancy. I used a four bean tin)
425g can of baby corn, chopped roughly (not the tin)
1 carrot, chopped thinly
100g snow peas, chopped randomly
1/4 cup fresh coriander, chopped with wild abandon
For the dressing:
1 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3cm piece of ginger, grated
STEP ONE: Place cooked brown rice in a large bowl. Toss beans, baby corn, carrot, snow peas and coriander through the rice.
STEP TWO: Into a small plastic container with a sealable lid put the sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic and ginger, then shake the bejeezus out of it.
STEP THREE: Pour the dressing over the rice mix and stir it all together.
STEP FOUR: Open a bottle of white and find yourself a comfortable spot to watch your husband slave away over a hot BBQ with a beer in his hand and thongs on his feet. Congratulate yourself on marrying such a fine example of Australian manly manliness. You are living the dream.
