Good things from a small kitchen.
I started cycling to work again yesterday, although it was short lived as I had three punctures this morning and am currently writing this on the train! Anyway, back to the point! So after a long cycle in the damp November weather I fancied something quick and warming for dinner.
Rummaging through my freezer I found some of the barley I had cooked the previous weekend ( this is the cheat bit I guess but you could easily use one of the precooked packets of rice in various flavours you can get from the supermarket) . So I warmed this up and when it was hot took it off of the gas and stirred in some rocket. At the same time I simply tossed some pre cooked crayfish in some hot olive oil with garlic, chilli and squeezed some lime juice on at the end.
The result was a really tasty supper that took minutes and was full of good warming stuff.
