I have a confession to make…

I love fried sausages.

So if you are going to eat sausages you have got to put lots of healthy stuff with them.  This is where Chick Pea Sprouts and Rainbow Chard come in.  Another late night home meant dinner had to be quick again.

So cooked rice adapted with a Middle Eastern flavour. The Egyptians have a rice, lentil and pasta dish called Koushari.  It is an “oil” dish that can be eaten when fasting from animal products. It often contains chick peas.

A simple Koushari using cooked rice and 2 minute noodles and sprouted chick peas took about 10 minutes to cook.

Cover the base of a large pan with olive oil, Saute a large onion till soft but not coloured, add sprouted chick peas cook through to flavour the oil and the chick peas with the onion.  Cover 2 min noodles with boiled water throw the seasoning in the bin, after 2 mins drain the noodles.

Toss the rice through the onion and chick peas. Warm the rice then stir the noodles through so everything is  covered with the oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Koushari is usually topped with a tomato sauce.

Another sliced onion sauteed in olive oil, 2 or 3 crushed cloves of garlic. Throw in the roughly chopped tomatoes and about a cup of passata.  Cover and cook until the tomatoes soften and break down.  When you are ready to dish add the Rainbow Chard (silverbeet) to the pan. Cover and cook till wilted.
