Who says they’ve not got time to cook? This recipe takes 5 minutes to prepare and just 20 minutes to cook and used just one pan.
You don’t need a take away when food is this easy and quick to prepare! This recipe slightly “cheats” by making use of a microwave rice pouch – so cuts back on cooking time and washing up. I took inspiration from the link shown, but added mushrooms, peas and a few green beans, as I do love my vegetables and the beans were harvested from the garden!

Fancy a flavour-packed yet quick-to-create midweek meal? Simply pull out your pan and whip up this delicious dinner for two, which combines more-ish chorizo and juicy prawns with rich tomatoes, spring onions and fluffy rice.
Preparation: Halve the tomatoes, trim and finely slice the spring onion. Wipe the mushrooms and cut into bite sized chunks. Top and tail the beans and cut into 1cm lengths. Remove the skin from the chorizo, discard skin and slice the sausage. Chop the parsley.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chorizo, mushrooms and spring onions cook for 5 minutes, or until golden.
Add the prawns and and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the prawns are just pink.
Stir in the rice and tomatoes. Leave to cook over a low heat for 10-12 minutes, until a golden crust forms on the bottom of the pan and the tomatoes have softened a little.
Break up the rice with a fork and season to taste. Scatter over the parsley and serve with a wedge of lemon.
