Weekend foodie: Tasty Kedgeree

Kedgeree is something my mum used to make a lot when we were younger. She's Irish, so I'm not sure it was the authentic version, but it was definitely tasty as well as nutritious. Somehow a bunch of ingredients that individually don't sound that enticing come together to make a really delicious and easy to make supper. It's also a great one for a "store cupboard" supper when you haven't got much in the fridge. Here's my version:

Ingredients (to serve 2-3)

1 cup brown rice
1 onion, finely chopped
1 large filet of smoked mackerel (in Germany I buy this tinned)
2 eggs
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp curry powder
small handful of parsley
(optional - handful frozen peas)

Cook the rice according to the packet instructions. Boil the eggs, then put in cold water, peel and slice. Gently fry the onions in a little sunflower oil with the turmeric and curry powder.
Chop the parsley.  Once the rice is cooked, add to the pan of onions, flake in the fish and add the chopped eggs, parsley and peas. That's it!
