Dirty rice is a spiced Cajun rice dish that usually gets its dirty colour from finely chopped protein! We have paired our simplified “dirty rice” with charred corn and fresh summer toppings of mango and capsicum.
1. Place rice in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and rinse.

2. Heat frypan over high heat. Coat corn with 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Cook in pan for 10 minutes, turning, until charred.

3. Dice avocado, mango and capsicum. Set aside.

4. Reheat frypan (or use a new pan) over medium heat with 1 tbsp oil. Dice onion and celery, add to pan as you go along with drained beans, 1 tbsp cajun seasoning and 2 tsp cumin. Cook for 4 minutes until softened.

5. Take pan off heat. Add cooked rice and lime zest to pan. Toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

6. Cut corn into 8 cobettes. Divide among plates with rice and fresh toppings. Squeeze lime juice over top.
