Vegan Food & Living Exclusive: 15 minute rice dishes

Posted Monday, 20 February 2017   |   2731 views   |   Food & Drink   |   Comments (0) Looking for a snappy vegan midweek meal? With ever-increasing busy lifestyles, cooking can be difficult. Vegan Chef Day shows you how rice can make it simple.

A lack of time and energy is often the cause sited by many people for not cooking food from scratch, which results in them reaching for convenience food. But I am here to show you how you can cook filling, tasty and healthy vegan meals in minutes – 15 minutes to be precise. These two dishes all use frozen, pre-cooked, short grain brown rice. How often have you made too much rice? I often do and rather than throw it away I portion it into bags and freeze it to be used later in dishes like these. I use short grain brown rice, japonica, which is more alkalising than long grain rice. Each dish makes enough for two people and they are satisfying meals. They are also one-pot dishes, which limits the washing up!

Tofu Fried Rice

by Vegan Chef Day (www.veganchefday.com)

Serves 2 | Prep 10 mins | Cook 40 mins | Calories 696 (per serving)

 

1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 pack (280g/9¼oz) firm tofu, drained well
2½cm (1½in) ginger
1 large garlic clove, peeled, chopped
1 red chilli
a handful of mini corn, mangetout, tenderstem and spring onion
4 pak choi, bottoms cut off
a handful of peanuts
a handful of cashews
250g (9oz) frozen brown rice

1. In a large frying pan, heat the oil on a high heat.

2. Add the block of tofu and break it up into small pieces using the back of a fork.

3. While this is frying, finely grate the ginger, garlic and chilli. When you grate the chilli you will have to push it against the grater quite firmly. Be sure to wash your hands well after doing this.

4. Add this to the pan along with the corn, mangetout, broccoli, onion, pak choi, nuts, rice, tamari and water.

5. Stir well, place a lid or plate on top. Allow to cook for around 5 minutes until the rice is heated through and serve.
