Vegetarian Recipe: Meat Free Monday's Curried Eggs with Turmeric Rice

Of course when you're 'Meat Free Monday' in its various guises might be taking over the world. It's hard to keep track of which one is which as there is Meat Free Monday, Meat Free Mondays in the UK, and Meatless Mondays in the US. But general gist of it is these campaigns is to try to encourage all people to go a least one day a week without meat. They say it's good for your health, your pocket, your planet and they're right. Stella McCartney's branch of this movement has even published a book, The Meat Free Monday Cook Book, with recipes for every meal of the day, making it easier than ever for part-time, transitioning, or beginner vegetarians to get into their greens.

I had a go at one of their recipes for Curried Eggs with Rice. It was lovely, simple and extremely quick with a rice cooker. I used basmati rice instead of wild rice, but the final result was still quite satisfying. Here's my version take on it.

Curried Egg With Turmeric Rice

Serves 1-2

2 cups of cooked rice
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
1 small head of cabbage shredded
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp turmeric
2 hard boiled eggs
  1. Heat oil in a frying pan on high heat. When it's hot, add in the shredded cabbage and chopped garlic and cook until the cabbage has gone all soft in the middle and a little bit brown on the edges. 
  2. Next add in the rice, curry powder and turmeric, then mix everything together until it's that beautiful golden colour. 
  3. Finally coarsely chop up your eggs and add to the mixture. Salt to taste and serve.
 And that's all she wrote. It comes out in a beautiful rich yellow tone which looks amazing next to a bold green salad.
