Confetti Kedgeree

Here's another great meatless (though not vegan) recipe from Nikki and David Goldbeck's American Wholefoods Cuisine.  This recipe is a great use for leftover beans but, if you need to, you can use canned beans in a pinch.  If you have leftover rice, you can have this dish made in a flash!

This is a very inexpensive meal, and good when your larder is getting low as it uses pantry staples.  On this occasion, I did use canned beans, which I drained and lightly rinsed.  I combined kidney beans and navy beans for contrast in color and taste.  You can use any beans you prefer -- pinto beans and black beans are also good choices.  It reheats well for leftovers, too.


from Nikki & David Goldbeck’s 
American Wholefoods Cuisine

2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup chopped scallion or onion
1 tablespoon curry powder
3 cups cooked brown rice
2 cups cooked beans, drained (or 2 cans if using canned beans)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped pimiento
Dash soy sauce
Salt (omit if rice and beans are salted)
2 hard-cooked eggs, separated

Heat oil in a 15-inch skillet or wok.  Saute scallion for 2-3 minutes to soften, add curry powder, and cook for 1 minute.

Add rice, beans, lemon juice, soy sauce and dash of salt if needed to pan and heat through, stirring to prevent sticking.

Chop and mix in the egg whites.  When hot, top with crumbled egg yolk, remove from heat, and serve.


  1. ooo... healthy meals are awesome! Thanks.

  2. This sounds filling, delicious, and healthy!

  3. That is funny - that we both posted a curry recipe today - Great minds think alike! ;-)
    Your recipe sounds so unique - especially with the eggs - I will be trying this!

  4. This reminds me of my childhood! I often had kedgeree for breakfast at
    weekends, though I remember there was fish in it :) Must try your version with beans! Yum!

  5. It looks yummy and it has a LOT of nutrients! xoxo

  6. I have to try this out! Never have so far :)) but we often eat beans and rice separately. I guess it is high time to introduce them to each other!

  7. Ooh, I'm definately bookmarking this one! These are all ingredients that seem to lurk in the back of our cupboard when we need to do a shop. Apart from the eggs, maybe! Thank you for the inspiration :)

  8. Sounds like a great protein filled meal:)
