1/2 head of organic celery, sliced
125g Wholegrain Rice (Shop Now)
125g organic broccoli, stalks sliced, head cut into florets
125g organic mushrooms, quartered
1 bunch organic watercress, roughly chopped
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Warm Waitrose organic bread, to serve
Place a non-stick pan over a medium heat and add the carrots, onions and celery. Cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables are slightly softened, stirring frequently. If you do not have a non-stick pan, use an ordinary pan and add a little water to stop the vegetables sticking on the bottom.
Add the rice and 1.2 litres water to the pan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the rice is cooked.
Add the broccoli and mushrooms and cook for a further 4 minutes.
Add the watercress, mix well and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Serve immediately with the rye crackers or warm organic bread.
