green salad to serve
- Rinse the rice three times in cold water and drain well.
- Place the chicken stock in a large saucepan, bring to the boil and add the remaining rice ingredients.
- Add the rice, cover, and cook over a very low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Remove the bay leaves.
- Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Add the turkey and Cajun spice mix and stir-fry for 5-6 minutes.
- Add the onion and stir-fry for a further 3-4 minutes, then turn down the heat to low and add the peppers, celery, spring onions and garlic and stir-fry gently for 4-5 minutes.
- Add the tomatoes and parsley to the meat and vegetables in the pan. Stir to combine, then mix gently into the cooked rice.
- Season to taste and serve immediately with a crisp, green salad.
