I discovered this recipe by accident but have been making it ever since for a quick, easy lunch or dinner for one. The tomatoes and spinach soften easily in the microwave and the cheese melts to create a sauce and give the consistency of risotto.


Serves: 1 

  • 1 (250g) pouch 2 minute microwave brown rice
  • 8 or 10 cherry tomatoes
  • a handful (about 20g) fresh spinach leaves
  • 40g mozzarella or parmesan cheese, cubed
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

  1. Transfer the brown rice to a microwave safe dish. Add tomatoes, spinach and mozarella cubes. Mix well.
  2. Cover the bowl with a piece of damp kitchen roll. Microwave for 2 minutes, remove and stir well. Season well with salt and pepper and eat immediately.
