Easy but nutritiously nomish foods to stuff your face with when you’re knackered.

Cheater’s Jambalaya

Jambalaya is a Creole version of paella, for want of a better description.

You chuck stuff into rice and it’s very tasty, very easy and rather nutritious (as long as you’re a good cyclist and don’t chuck in loads of filth!)

Ingredients
(No measures, that’s up to you. This isn’t a cookery channel!
Do as Jamie Oliver does..Whack it in, laverley, gorgeous, BOSH!):
Basmati rice.
Chorizo sausage, chopped into pieces.
Stalk of celery, chopped.
Handful of frozen prawns.
One capsicum pepper, chopped.
Powdered stock (like Marigold Swiss Bullion).
Other stuff you might fancy, like onions, garlic, chicken, chillis, frozen white fish, etc.
Glug of olive oil.

GET IN FROM RIDE, DO THIS STRAIGHT AWAY.
With a glug of olive oil, fry the chorizo to get the rich red fat running from it (this is your treat for those extra miles). Add the celery and fry. Add anything that is best fried first, like onions or chilli.
Add the rice for sec and stir so covered with oil. Add boiling water, at roughly 3.5 times the volume of rice. Add stock and seasoning to taste. Simmer on a very low gas with a lid on.

GO HAVE YOUR SHOWER. OR IF WEARING MERINO, WASH FACE AND COMB HAIR.
After 10 minutes chuck in the frozen prawns (no need to defrost) and the pepper, so they are just done after 2-3 minutes.

DEVOUR LIKE ANIMAL, AS THOUGH YOU HAVE TREKKED THE GOBI DESSERT WITHOUT SUSTENANCE FOR WEEKS.

Hot, sticky, spicy, filling. Happy tum. Happy recovery.
