1

Boil the water (amount specified in the ingredient list) in a pot with a pinch of salt. Once boiling, pour in the rice, turn the heat to its lowest setting and put a lid on. Leave your rice on low heat for 10 mins, then rest off the heat for 10 mins. Tip: Do not lift the lid until the whole 20 mins are up or the rice won’t cook.

Peel and cut the onion in half through the root then slice into thin half moon shapes. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press if you have one). Chop the tomato into 2cm cubes. Cut the very tops and bottoms off the green beans, and chop into three pieces.

Add your sweet potato, tomato and green beans to your onion mixture. Add the water (amount specified in the ingredient list), place a lid on the pan and cook on low heat for 6 mins. Tip: If you don’t have a lid, you can always place a baking tray on top of the pan. Meanwhile, roughly chop the coriander and mint.

Pour your rice and three-quarters of the almonds into the pan and mix everything together. Squeeze over a dash of lime juice. Take off the heat, crumble in the feta and stir through your herbs.
