Rice Parcels

These amazing rice parcels are one of our favourite dinners. It’s the dinner where you can load up on all your leftover veggies and it’s super quick and easy to make. Who doesn’t love a dinner that is super quick to whip up? You can sub out any of the below veggies and add whatever you please. You can also add any type of meat. We love adding some twiggy sticks or chicken or you could even do prawns however you’d need to amend the cooking time / allow time to precook the meat.
