50g mushrooms, quartered
30g Cheddar Cheese, grated

Salt & pepper to taste

What to do:

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan and cook the onion, garlic & mushrooms for 3-4 minutes until soft, stirring all the time. Mix in the Turmeric, Salt & Pepper.

Add the rice and the stock, bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover the pan and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed Keep stirring now and again so that it doesn’t stick. This should take about 20/25 minutes.
