  • Chicken or vegetable stock
  • 100g pumpkin seeds
  • A drizzle of pumpkin seed oil or walnut oil
  • 75g juicy raisins
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

Method

  1. Cook the rice in a saucepan of boiling chicken or vegetable stock for 10-12 minutes, until tender, then drain.
  2. Heat a pan and dry-fry the pumpkin seeds for a couple of minutes to toast, then add a drizzle of pumpkin seed oil or walnut oil, the rice and raisins. Add the coriander, toss well to mix through, check the seasoning and serve.
