Deliciously flavoursome with a little hint of spice.  It's also jam packed with veggies.  This Cajun dirty rice recipe is a meal in itself but it also makes a fabulous side dish or accompaniment to a salad.

Pop the rice on to boil in a large pan.

Start by mincing the garlic.

Then dice the onions.

They can both be thrown in a pan ready for frying.

Dice the bacon and fry that too.

Add the mince and fry that.

Once the meat is cooked add the Cajun spice mix.

And the balsamic vinegar.

Once it's all well mixed add it to the cooked rice.

Chop the peppers, add them to the rest of the ingredients.
