Peri Peri Rice Bowl is a delicious and flavorful dish that is perfect for a quick and easy meal. The dish is inspired by the traditional flavours of African cuisine and features a spicy Peri Peri sauce that is served over a bed of fluffy white rice. The sauce is made with a blend of chilli peppers, garlic, and spices, giving it a bold and spicy flavour that is balanced out by the mildness of the rice. Peri Peri Rice Bowl is versatile and can be customized to your liking.

So this happened today. In the midst of this pandemic, we are all in, the most exciting moment of my week is when my groceries arrive. They cancelled my order with absolutely no explanation. Because of that, my Sunday menu got disrupted. I know it’s not the end of the world but I was so looking forward to passing four hours of my time washing the fruits and veggies and wiping every single item down. After brooding for a bit, I checked out my fridge and pantry to see what I could make with what I had on hand and lo and behold I made THE MOST DELICIOUS dish ever!

  • In your instant pot hit sauté mode and add your butter. When hot add onions garlic a 1/4 of the chopped dill salt and cook till fragrant and the onions are translucent.
