Simple Salmon Kedgeree Recipe

I think preparing food and feeding people brings nourishment not only to our bodies but to our spirits. Feeding people is a way of loving them, in the same way that feeding ourselves is a way of honoring our own createdness and fragility.

Hey, Lovelies!

This is one of my easy go-to meals when I am tired and want something that is nurturing, filling and flavoursome.

Kedgeree was originally a dish of spiced lentils, onions, garlic, ginger and rice, known as kitchiri. It was a common breakfast dish in India, and it became a favourite with colonialists who altered the recipe over time. I make a variation on kedgeree when I have cooked rice and vegetables to hand, a hard-boiled egg and some salmon. It’s comfort food in a bowl, and it is delicious and sustaining.

I cook up plenty of brown rice at the beginning of the week, and cook vegetables which I can add to the rice. This week I cooked up sweet corn, zucchini, carrot, peas, and cauliflower. My ratio is 50:50 rice to vegetables. It makes a quick meal base for so many things! I also prepare hard-boiled eggs for fast meals or protein-rich snacks. Add fish to this, a little onion and curry and you have kedgeree.

I often cook up extra salmon fillets so I can have some to use during the week, but canned salmon works just as well.

I hope you enjoy this simple tasty meal. It’s good served warm, and equally delicious cold.

Hugs and love, Nicole xx
