Red Rice Tortilla with Creamy Brie and Avocado Salsa

Serves 4

1 cup red rice

2 tbsp olive oil

2 shallots, thinly sliced

2 rosemary sprigs, leaves 

removed from stalks

100g chorizo, diced (gluten free)

250g button mushrooms, halved

6 eggs, beaten

150g brie, sliced

fresh thyme, to serve

Avocado Salsa

1 firm avocado

100g cherry tomatoes, sliced 

into quarters

1 lemon, juice only

½ red onion, finely diced

2 tbsp parsley or coriander, chopped

Rinse rice to remove excess starch and drain. Pour rice into a large pot of boiling water. Lower heat and boil gently, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat olive oil in a 20cm heavy bottomed frying pan with a lid. Add shallots, rosemary, chorizo and mushrooms and toss thoroughly in oil; season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook over a low heat for 5 minutes until shallots are tender, stirring occasionally.

Add cooked rice and cook for another 5 minutes.

Lightly whisk eggs and season. Pour eggs over the rice mixture and stir. Flatten mixture with the back of a fork and arrange brie over top.

Cook in oven for 20-25 minutes, uncovered, until just set and cheese has melted.

To make the avocado salsa, combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Using a palette knife, gently score around tortilla edge. Slide tortilla onto a plate. Sprinkle over some fresh thyme. Cut into wedges and serve immediately with avocado salsa.

    Not sure this belongs in the Vegetarian category with chorizo as an ingredient? Aside from that, looks delicious!
