|3 tbs olive oil||1 large leek, sliced|
|2 cloves garlic, chopped||12 oz/375 g brown rice, washed|

Heat the oil in a large frying pan or skillet, and saute the garlic, onions, and peanuts. Add the celery, carrot, and leek, and saute for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the rice and continue to stir for another 5 minutes. Add the stock, mushrooms, and salt and pepper to taste, and bring to the boil. After 6–7 minutes, add the cucumber. Cover and simmer until the rice is tender and all the liquid is absorbed. Add more stock to the mixture if necessary.
