Even though I'm more than happy to spend all day in the kitchen, there are some occasions when I need to speed things up. At these times, quick bowls such as this one are ideal. The basis for this dish is a wild rice mix that is ready in 20 minutes. To this you add peas and seasonal asparagus in a creamy sauce, seasoned with my favourite spice, saffron. Finish it off with a little spinach and there you have it – the perfect 20-minute fix!
