2. Get a big frying pan. Put some oil in. Put said pan on another
burner and turn temperature to medium. Chop up the onions
and throw them in. Stir them around until they become almost
cooked and turn kind of translucent.
3. Is the pot of rice boiling yet? When it does, stick a lid on
it and change the burner temperature to low. Set a timer for
45 minutes (or whatever it should be for the rice you're using).
You can use white rice for this recipe, but brown rice is better
4. Our onions are doing well and it's time to add the sardines.
Push them around until they, too, are cooked to your satisfaction.
5. Add the crushed tomatoes and the corn if you're going that way.
6. Let this melange cook until it starts to thicken somewhat. This
can take awhile (around 20-30 minutes on my stove). Rinse and
add the spinach. Iron! Add some peanut butter, if you wish.
This may sound bizarre, but it gives the sauce a pleasing
flavour and consistancy. Add jalepenos if you want it spicy.
7. Stir it around. It's pretty much done now, so put the rice on
a big plate and sprinkle some good quality soya sauce on it if
8. Pour the sauce onto the rice. Garnish with olives and cheese if
you like these things.
9. Eat and enjoy! This makes enough for two good-sized portions, or
one piggishly large portion. You may have to experiment a bit
with this recipe, but it is cheap, nutritious, and delicious.
Sardines are very healthy fare.
10. Where you eat effects your enjoyment. Especially with mangoes.
Eat them while taking a bath.
