Well, as it says in the title, it only takes 30 minutes to cook. I absolutely love creating recipes that hover around the 30 minute mark. At the end of the day when you’re tired and don’t feel like cooking, I want you to have a recipe that you know you can can count on.

I also wanted to prioritise using ingredients that can be found in your local supermarket. If you’re on your way home from a busy day and you haven’t planned what you’re going to eat, this recipe is so easy to think of! There isn’t a tonne of fancy ingredients that you have to remember.

It’s also really easy to add vegetables to it for some extra nutrition (particularly if you have fussy children). Instead of peppers, you could also add carrots or sweetcorn.

Tip: to really save time, boil your kettle for the rice to heat the water up quicker. After you’ve put the rice on to boil, then prep your vegetables.
