RECIPE BACKSTORY
This recipe came at the spur of the moment as I was stood over the hob on a typically midweek evening with a handful of ingredients and no inspiration of what to do with them. I love fajitas but I eat too many of them and so I basically swapped the tortillas for healthy old brown rice and turned my fajitas into a streamlined healthy rice dish!
