    Cooking Time

    12-15 Minutes

    Ingredients

    • A quarter of a fennel
    • A handful of carrots
    • Half a handful of shallots
    • 3 cloves of garlic
    • 3 slices of ginger
    • A handful of your favourite mushrooms.
    • A handful of coriander
    • Salt, pepper and butter to season
    • A quarter cup of rice
    • Optional: bacon rashers or cooked chicken

    Method

    Roughly chop and peel all your ingredients. You can top and tail the carrots but leave them unpeeled. Big chunks of fennel are actually a bit awkward to eat, so chop them up a bit smaller.

    For your garlic, a fast and easy way to prep is to flatten them with the side of your knife then simply peel off the skin. You generally get more flavour from them this way too.

    Wash your rice, then add to 4 pints of simmering water, add everything but the seasoning and the coriander. Simmer on a low heat for 10-12 minutes before adding a knob of butter and salt and pepper to taste.
