kedgeree with paprika yoghurt

Recipe from 15 Minute Vegan on a Budget by Katy Beskow (Quadrille, £15) Photography © Dan Jones.

Perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, this kedgeree has plenty of dill and lemon and is great served hot with cooling salted yoghurt and paprika. A balanced dish that everyone will love.

Serves 2 generously

1 tbsp sunflower oil

1 onion, peeled and finely chopped

1 clove of garlic, peeled and crushed

1 tsp mild curry powder

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

1/2 tsp ground cumin

150g (5.5oz) basmati rice

700ml (1.25 pints/3 cups) hot water

8 small florets of broccoli

8 green beans, halved

2tbsp frozen peas

handfull of dill, finely chopped

juice of 1/2 unwaxed lemon

2 tbsp unsweetened soya yoghurt

pinch of fine sea salt

sprinkle of smoked paprika

I love adding green vegetables to the rice, including broccoli, green beans, and peas, but other quick-cook vegetables work well, including courgettes, spinach, and broad beans. Work with what you’ve got!

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat and cook the onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Spoon in the curry powder, turmeric, and cumin and cook for a further minute.

Stir through the rice and pour in the 500ml (17.5 fl oz/2 cups) of hot water. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the broccoli and green beans and pour in the remaining 200ml (7fl oz/generous 0.75 cups) of water, then cook for a further 4 minutes until the water has absorbed into the rice. Stir through the peas and cook for a further minute.

Remove from the heat and stir through the dill. Squeeze over the lemon juice and divide into two bowls.

Add 1 tablespoon of soya yoghurt over the kedgeree in each bowl and season with fine sea salt. Sprinkle a little sweet paprika over the yoghurt and serve.
