Today I have a super delicious recipe idea for your next lunch. A colorful rice dish with lots of fresh vegetables, a little broth and parsley. You don’t need more for a quick lunch.

Lately I’ve had problems figuring out what to cook today. Lunch recipes, in particular, have not been found on this blog so far. So, I just thought we had to change that!

Rice with peas, carrots and beans

Sure, dishes like my veggie stir-fry can also be great for lunch. But this should be a special lunch recipe. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you cannot eat this rice dish for dinner.

But I’m beating around the bush again. Let’s start with the actual recipe.

My tip for a quick lunch

If you really want to have your lunch super fast, I recommend that you simply cook the rice the night before for rice dishes like these. Or just prepare twice the amount of rice. So that you already have the rice at hand for situations in which it has to be quick and the only thing you have to do is throw in the vegetables. This saves a lot of time, which means that this dish can be prepared in under 10 minutes, for example.

Of course this is not always possible. That’s why I often just use a ready-made rice pack for the microwave. Like I did in my rice dish with chicken.
