Succulent prawns with rice

prawns with rice

This succulent prawns with rice dish is something my mum and I threw together one night when we were thinking about what to cook for dinner. It’s an easy dish to fill those hungry bellies as you only need a few ingredients: rice, prawns, courgettes, cheese and veg! Lovely combo when you want to bring a touch of the mediterranean to your home!

I really like creating simple and flavoursome dishes, as I am definitely someone who doesn’t want to spend hours slaving away in the kitchen for a mid week meal. This fed a family of four, and I did have seconds too! 😉 This is perfect for those on budget, you can find all of these ingredients very cheaply, so if you are looking to save money on your weekly shop and weekly meals, then try it out.
