As part of my commitment to lose weight this year, I'm looking to discover some simple new dishes that I can make at home. I'm looking for recipes that are extremely simple, taste nice but with very few ingredients. For example, one idea I have in mind is to boil some rice and fry it in vegetable oil and add some peas, spring onions and chillies and maybe have this to accompany some grilled chicken. Another similar idea is to have the above as a stir fry (substituting rice for noodles). Other ideas are just having a tin of soup with bread or a tin of beans with wholemeal toast. Any other ideas? Perhaps pasta related?
