552. Black-Eyed Peas and 553. Annatto Seed
This is exactly the kind of healthy meal that I love to make at home. I coated some turkey breast steaks in cajun seasoning, made a spicy rice dish to go on the side, then drizzled (ok, poured) yogurt all over the whole thing. I made the rice similarly to how you would make a risotto, by frying the onion first, adding in the rice, then adding the liquid bit by bit. I didn’t stir too much though as I wanted it to remain grainy rather than it getting that smooth, creamy risotto texture. I added chopped red peppers, sweetcorn and black-eyed peas, along with paprika and annatto to flavour. Black-eyed peas are a really nice bean to use as they’re small, and they have a nice nutty flavour. Annatto is also a great spice. I only just discovered it recently but it tastes like a peppery nutmeg with a hint of lemon.
