It is official, Christmas is upon us! A glorious time of year – I absolutely adore the festive season! I love spending time with my nearest and dearest. I love making homemade gifts and cooking for a crowd. This year will be no different, and I am super excited that some of my family from Malaysia will be visiting!
There are some recipes in life that are simple, require little work or ingredients and are yet immensely rewarding. This fried rice recipe is one of them – at least for me! This is my go-to dish if I am cooking supper for one. It is a great way to use up left-over vegetables and left-over cooked rice.
Portobello mushrooms are actually one of my favourite things. Ever. They are so flavoursome and they make the perfect base for this recipe! I actually use three different mushrooms in this recipe. Some may call it overkill, I call it heaven. Before I became vegetarian I used to think of mushrooms as quite bland. I didn’t dislike them, but they weren’t my vegetable of choice. Now we always keep a massive punnet of mushrooms in our fridge at all times and our spice cupboard ALWAYS contains some form of dried mushrooms – normally porcini.
So things have been pretty hectic around these here parts recently! I’ve just passed my driving test (yay!) and so have been pretty busy in the lead up to that! What has really saved me is recipes like this one. A great on-the-go breakfast recipe! The kind of recipe where you splodge a load of tasty ingredients in a pot and hope for the best!
