  • Prepare the brown rice according to package instructions
  • Bring the vegetable broth to the boil.
  • Cut the onion, carrot and courgette and add them to the broth.
  • Add the garlic and ginger to the broth as well.
  • Add the peanuts.
  • Add the tomato paste and peanut butter to the mixture.
  • Add the soy sauce last but check it’s not already too salty.
  • If you like it spicy add the hot sauce.
  • Let it simmer nicely until the rice is ready.
  • Serve in a bowl, eat.
  • Yum!



Use whatever veggies you have left. Who knows what fantastic flavours you might discover?
Taste test first! If your broth and peanut butter is already salty enough then I’d leave out the soy sauce.
