  • 1 leek finely cut
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 3 soft tomatoes roughly chopped or 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 dry chillie
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


Heat oil over medium heat for about 2 minutes. Then add ALL
ingredients at once. Stirring gently for about 3 inutes
until all ingredients are mixed well and starting to simmer.

Place lid and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes,
stirring every 2-3 minutes to avoid sticking on the bottom.

If it starts to stick lower heat a little or add a table
spoon of water.

Cook until rice is cooked. Allow to cool a little and serve
with a squeeze of lemon juice, crusty vegan bread and a greek
salad. (Can be eaten at room temperature in the summer!)
