Today I have had a day off and it was a pure treat! It's important to sometimes take a few steps back from the professional life and just do what feels best for you, mmmm. I have had a few boxes ticked off today.
Hairdressers - tick!
Home made chocolate marbles - tick!
Pub quiz - tick! (And out team even got second place!)
Ice cream - tick!
In a busy week day though, or on days when you feel like little effort should be made in the kitchen - you can still rattle up some healthy food in zero point swish! (That's in a flash to you and me) You can even use the rice from yesterday's dinner if you have some left!
Here's what you need for some lovely, creamy rice - perfect as a side with many a main dish, or funk it up and have it for lunch, either as a salad or part as a sandwhich filler. As you have maybe noticed, these multi-purpose meals are all the rage on my blog these days!
Feel free to add a bit of a kick to it with a bit of finely chopped chillies, or perhaps add more veggies by swirling some chopped tomatoes and chopped red onion in the mix as well?
(Serves 3-4 as a side)
2 cups cooked wholegrain rice (1 cup uncooked)
Juice of 1 lime
A pinch of cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped tomatoes, finely chopped chillies, and garlic all optional
Potential garnish: vegan coconut "bacon"
- If the rice isn't cooked yet, do so first by following the instructions on the packet. Once done, rinse in cold water and drain well, set aside.
- Have all the remaining ingredients apart from the sweetcorn, in a bowl and use a stick-mixer to make a nice and smooth guacamole, stir in the sweetcorn and rise, and it's all done! Serve along side main dishes, garnish with whatever you see fit, or use it as part of a filling for sandwiches.

If you have leftovers, you can store them in the fridge, just remember to keep the avocado pit in it so it prevents it from discolouring.
I hope you have had a great week so far! Do you have other good avocado recipes?
