Rice with vegetables


Is been a while since I eat meat and I am starting to get familiar with all the vegan or ova-lacto-vegan recipes.
Actually, I am not a big meat lover, I occasionally eat some chicken breast or turkey and maybe once or twice a year veal.
So maybe I could get used with not eating meat (even though I am not sure I want to), but as I said before I am sure I cannot leave without fish or seafood :)

So, back to the vegan dishes: another one will follow – rice with vegetables. Is a classic vegan recipe, easy to make and which will pleasure everyone in the family, I believe even the children since it will be a colorful one :)

You will need (for 4 servings):

  • 6 green onions
  • 2 bell peppers (one red and one orange)
  • 100 g peas
  • 200 g boiled corn
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 300 g boiled rice
  • 250 ml clear soup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper

It about 25-30 minutes the dish will be ready, but let’s see how to do it:

  1. First, cut the green onions in bolts and put aside 2 tablespoons of them for garnishing.
  2. Cut the bell peppers into little cubs.
  3. At slow fire, in a wok, were you put some olive oil, cook for 1-2 minutes the onion,the bell pepper, the peas and the corn.
  4. Then add the soup, put a lid over the wok and let everything cook for 5-6 minutes at a slow fire.
  5. Add the boiled rice (boiled it as said on the package), the salt and the pepper. Stop the oven and leave everything in the covered wok for about 10-12 minutes.
  6. Serve the rice with vegetables garnished with fresh parsley and bolts of onion.

I presented the dish with the vegetables I used when I prepared it, but you should feel free to add whatever vegetables you like: zucchini, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.


Hope you enjoy it! :)
