Valentines treat

So next week its valentines day, and here's a heads up with a recipe to treat your loved ones to. Next week we'll have a couple of twist on the simple pancake recipe, one sweet and one savory. Because we're posting next Friday you could even use them as a starter and pudding to accompany the following to complete your romantic meal.

Chicken, edamame & ginger pilaf

Chicken, edamame & ginger pilaf

1 onion, thinly sliced
thumb-sized piece ginger, grated
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
3 skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
250g basmati rice
600ml vegetable stock
100g frozen edamame / soya beans
coriander leaves

In a medium saucepan add the onion, ginger and chilli, along with some seasoning. Cook for 5 mins, then add the chicken and rice. Cook for 2 mins more, then add the stock and bring to the boil. Turn the heat to low, cover and cook for 8-10 mins until the rice is just cooked. During the final 3 mins of cooking, add the edamame beans. Sprinkle some coriander leaves on top and serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt, if you like.
