Looking for the best vegan recipes? This blog will help you cut out meat, dairy, and other animal products—and all recipes here prove that vegan food is anything but bland. After all, so many of the flavors we spice our meats with are plant-based: onions, garlic, spices, herbs…and so on. So today im happy to walk you through and yummy and tasty vegan recipes named “Tasty Bowl of Golden Garlic Rice”:
- 1/4 cup of neutral oil (your choice)
- 1 tablespoon of achiote powder
- 1 small head of garlic, peeled and minced
- 2 cups of long-grain white rice
- 3 1/2 cups of vegetable broth
- Salt, to taste
- Zest of one large orange (optional)
In a large, heavy-bottomed stock pot, combine oil, achiote powder and chopped garlic. Saute over medium heat for about one minute, until garlic has softened (but is not browning).
Add uncooked rice to the pot. Stir until rice is evenly coated with oil.
Add vegetable broth and orange zest (if using) to the pot. Stir well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover with lid and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until rice is tender and has absorbed all the broth.
Remove the pot from heat. Leaving the lid in place, allow rice to steam in the pot for 5 minutes. Remove the lid and fluff with a fork.
