“This is a very tasty combination, that I came across by chance in an old "Reader's Digest", suitable especially for Vegetarians, I adapted it a little and actually have never used the cheese on top!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in large pan, add onion, carrots and garlic and fry for 5 minutes, stirring once in a while.
  2. Add pepper, raisins and seasonings stir and fry for 2 minutes.
  3. Chop the tomatoes and stir in with their juice and 5 tablespoons of water, bring to the boil, lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add rice and kidney beans and continue simmering and stirring for 5 minutes.
  5. Add the broccoli and simmer for 10 minutes, mixing so it doesn't burn. You might need to add a bit more water.
  6. Transfer to a suitable dish and grill for 5-6 minutes with parmesan cheese on top. (I never did this step and didn't feel the need for cheese).
  7. Enjoy!
