Today, I’m here for all my vegetarian readers. A while ago, two of my classmates who happen to be vegetarian asked me “Please please make something to cater for us as well” and I realized I actually barely do this! So this post is dedicated to my two classmates who asked me for this ! I hope you like it and try it out. Rice can be elevated in a number of ways and this is how I do mine the vegetarian version!
- Half a cup of rice
- One and a half cup of water
- Diced carrots
- Diced spring onion
- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
- Non- salted cashew nuts (optional)
- Cilantro for garnish
Serves : 2
Prep time : 6 minutes
Cook time : 15 minutes
- Wash your rice thoroughly
- In a sauce pan, add in your 1 and 1/2 cup of water. The reason we add in this amount is because the ratio of rice to water is 1:2. So for every amount of rice you cook, you add in twice as much water.
- Let the water boil and add in a tablespoon of oil and two pinches of salt
- Add in your rice and let it cook through for about 8-10 minutes till the water all evaporates.
- Add in a drizzle of oil once the water has all evaporated to avoid the rice from sticking together.
- Set your rice aside and let it cool.
NB: for the best fried rice, set it in the fridge and remove it the following day.
- In a pan, add in a tablespoon of oil
- Add in your carrots & spring onion and let them cook for about 3 minutes
- Add in your rice and stir it.
- Add in your soy sauce, as you stir the rice gently at low heat
- Add your raisins and your rice is ready to eat!
- You may as well garnish with some cashew nuts and cilantro and serve !
See how easy that was? Right
See you on the next post folks!
