Quick One-Pot Prawns with peppers in lime sauce

During the week I don’t have time to cook big meals or spend more than 30 minutes in the kitchen after a long day in the office. But I still want to eat healthy and so I have a few light and easy to make weeknight recipes. One of my favourites is this one-pot prawn and veggie rice with lime sauce. It’s healthy and creative and sends you on a little vacay after a hard day at work. It wont’t take you more than 20 minutes and you enjoy this – almost – one-pot meal.
