One of my favourite cuisines is Mexican food. This is such a simple recipe to make and it is also inexpensive. It is a great warming meal that tastes so fresh with tangy lime & lemon juice and coriander.

SunRice Rice & Quinoa is a source of protein, fibre, magnesium and niacin and not only is it easy to cook, but rice is also versatile and gluten free. So no matter if you prefer to use it in a fresh rice salad, or alongside a crispy skin salmon, there’s something for everyone.

There’s a bit of a misconception that rice - and brown rice in particular - is hard to cook, but it’s really not; it just requires a little more water and time than white rice.

From go to whoa this dish can be made in 30 minutes, and that’s mainly just prep. Double the recipe and use for lunches during the week. Jx
