  1. Heat the pan over a medium heat then add the olive oil or butter. Let it sizzle then add the rice and mix well, frying for 2 mins. Add the stock or water and cover the pan with the lid. Reduce the heat to a moderate simmer and cook for 20-25 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the grated beetroot with the harissa. Add the beetroot mixture and the Tenderstem® broccoli to the rice for the last 6 mins of cooking (work quickly so you keep the heat in the pan).

  3. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.

  4. If you want to add in the extras, roughly chop the coriander and mint, then sprinkle over the dish, along with the pomegranate seeds, chopped walnuts and yoghurt or feta. This dish is deliciously tasty as it is, but if you want to add some protein, serve with roasted chicken quarters, legs or thighs.
