Tricoloured Rice

Tricoloured RiceI’m back from a really enjoyable week in Spain. After so many years it was great to spend a few days with my mother. We had errands to run but we surely didn’t skip on the laughs, tapas, wine, sun and when travelling a Bloody Mary or two never hurt. Feeling jolly, I decided to post a colourful recipe that reflects the week we had. As a base for this recipe I took the avocado cilantro lime rice from closetcooking. I just love the way the mashed avocado blends in the rice. From now on, each time I’ll pair avocado and rice, I’ll do it this way.

Tricoloured Rice

Recipe for 4

Prep time: 10-15 min

Cook time: 25-30 min

 

Ingredients:

300 g cherry tomatoes

240 g rice (I used quick cooking whole rice)

2 small avocadoes

4 generous tbsp. chopped coriander leaves

150 g mozzarella

Salt and pepper

Olive oil

Sherry vinegar

 

Recipe:

Preheat oven at 160°C.

Quarter the cherry tomatoes and place them in a baking dish cut side up. Drizzle a little olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper on them. Bake in the oven for 25-30 min.

Meanwhile cook the rice according to package instructions.

Remove the flesh of the avocadoes, place them in a bowl and mash them with a fork. Season with salt and pepper to taste, add to the rice and mix.

Cut the mozzarella into 1 cm cubes and add it to the rice with the tomatoes and coriander. Blend all the ingredients together, correct taste with salt pepper and sherry vinegar to your liking. Serve warm or cold.

  1. I never thought to add avocado to a rice dish before but this one, with its tomatoes and mozzarella, does sound good. What a great dish!
    Oh! Welcome back! 🙂

    • Thanks John! I love browsing the internet for recipe ideas and when I found this idea, I had to try it. Since then. even my mother has begun using avocados in this manner 🙂

    • So you’re a rice fan like my husband… indeed this is great for summer and I find it’s a great way to add nutrients to a dish.
