  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 small courgettes according to size
  • 2 small tomatoes


  • Heat the oven to 180°C (350°F) gas 4. Wash the rice; drain and dry by wrapping it up in a cloth.
  • in a flameproof casserole, saute the finely chopped onion in 25 g (1 oz) butter until light golden in colour. Add the rice and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until it begins to colour. Then pour in the boiling stock, add the thyme and salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.

Saute the sliced courgettes in 25 g (1 oz) butter, stirring constantly, until the courgettes are just tender. Add the diced tomatoes and continue to cook until the tomatoes are warmed through. Season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Just before serving, toss the cooked vegetables and the remaining butter into the cooked rice.
