There are many types of rice and even more ways of preparing them, infusing the rice with delicious flavours is one of my favorites, so of course I’d have to share one of these recipes with you. This will be a nice change from your regular plain rice.
In many countries spiced rice dishes are a staple, and in Suriname it is no different. Although this dish isn’t a traditional Surinamese dish, it still draws inspiration from its diversity in cuisines (especially the indian) and bold flavours, to create this delicious and comforting dish. …
“Another Rainbowl!?” You might ask, to which I’ll answer “of course! And there plenty more coming your way”. It might seem to become repetitive, but trust me, each bowl packs it’s own flavour, offering a new colourful experience. And to be honest you can skip the rainbowl and use the roasted veggies in whatever dish you like, or eat them as a snack, yes they work great as a snack item!
The main components for this bowl are the roasted cauliflower, romanesco and broccoli, but feel free to use only cauliflower. I bought a fun vegetable pack from my local supermarket Albert Heijn (not sponsored), which came with mini white and purple cauliflower, mini broccoli and mini romanesco. You know I couldn’t let that purple cauliflower slip through my hands!
But don’t worry all of these could easily be replaced by one big cauliflower, no need to find the oh so elusive purple cauliflower! This recipe was a bit to spicy for one of my friends, but I don’t blame her since I threw in a adjuma pepper, seeds and all, whoops. So if you’re not blessed with a stomach lined with metal use half a pepper or skip it all together. But by now you must know that almost all of my recipes are open to interpretations.
If you are choosing to go for a rainbowl and want to make some of those colour transforming “unicorn” noodles you can follow the instructions posted here. I personally love creating colourful dishes like this because eat colour has its own beneficial properties, so try to eat as colourful as possible. Eat the rainbow!
Let me know if you liked the recipe in the comments below and if you decide to recreate this dish feel free to tag me on Instagram as I’d love to see your creations!
“But where do you get your protein!?”, a common question many vegans seem to deal with, even I got asked the question on several occasions. Now I may not be a nutritionist but I do know that rice and beans make a complete protein, so my answer has to be, (here it comes) rice and beans! This simple combination has been a staple ever since I remember.
Tip: When you use canned or beans from a jar always wash them to remove the soaking water, this will make you feel less gassy. Wash them until the little bubbles disappear.
I love greens and I love curry, why not marry these together into a nice delicious sauce to eat over rice, with some bread, roti or whatever else your heart desires. This is not a traditional curry recipe, but instead inspired by the delicious indian/surinamese dishes I loved to eat. One thing that makes this dish so great is that it will take about 20 minutes to create, nothing fancy, just good food!
There will be lots more simple and easy dishes appearing on the blog because we all can use some simplicity. Of course you can still expect crazy rainbow dishes like this recipe for rainbow sushi or this recipe for unicorn dumplings.
I used green bell pepper, peas, cilantro and sugar snaps, but for an even greener curry you can add spinach or ever kale, use whatever your heart desires. The heat in this dish is mild so if you like it spicy your can add a chilli pepper or another tablespoon of chilli flakes (gochugaru), and if you don’t like any heat at all you can skip the peppers.
And of course you can spot my bowl, which has pink rice (coloured with beet powder), because why have white rice when you can have any other colour? I never skip an opportunity to feed my chakras!
Hope you’ll love this recipe, feel free to let me know if you made it or made a variation of this dish!
For months i’ve been trying to make a burger recipe that actually met all my burger requirements, which included:
- Being crisp, but not hard and dry on the outside
- Not dry or pasty on the inside
- The burger can’t look like a cookie (last couple of experiments i’ve heard “oh what kind of cookies are those”
- My non vegan family has to like them.
