Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red or white onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 4 cardamom pods, bashed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 100g mixed brown and wild rice (or basmati)
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • handful leftover cooked turkey, goose or duck, shredded
  • handful toasted nuts
  • handful coriander, roughly chopped
  • leftover cranberry sauce, to serve

Tip

Short of time?
Just grab a pouch of ready-cooked basmati or wild rice and heat through with the spices, cooked onions and shredded turkey.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the onions and garlic until softened, about 5 mins. Add the spices and rice, then stir-fry for 1-2 mins. Pour in the hot stock and simmer until the stock is nearly all absorbed, about 20-25 mins. Stir in the turkey, add seasoning, then continue cooking until warmed through. Scatter over the nuts and coriander. Divide between two bowls and serve with a dollop of cranberry sauce.
