Vegan wok with Yamani rice!

Today I’m going to share with you one of my favorite vegan recipes of all time! I discovered this one recently and I can’t stop cooking it! It is pretty simple to make but you have to constantly keep an eye on it.

Let’s get to it!

What we need:
– 1 1/2 cups of Yamani Rice
– 1 red pepper
– 3 round zucchini
– 2 carrots
– a handful of soybeans sprouts
– 1 cup of sliced scallions
– salt and pepper
– sesame seeds
–  sesame and sunflower oil
– soy sauce

First, we are going to julienne everything except the IMG_20170319_155333233scallions and the soybeans sprouts. We can do that while we cook the Yamani Rice because it takes a long time to cook!
Then we are going to add 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil, the sliced carrots and the sliced red pepper. We are going to turn up the flame to medium, we don’t want to burn anything but we also don’t want this wok to take ages to cook! Once everything is cooked, we add the round zucchinis and the sliced scallions.

Once everything is mixed and you can see the zucchinis have softened a little bit, we add the pre-cooked Yamani Rice. And again, let’s mix it!

After 2 minutes we add de soy sauce: you can add as much as you want but keep in mind that soy sauce has a lot of sodium in it, so if you added a lot of salt, don’t go heavy with this one (unless is low sodium soy sauce).

Again, don’t forget to mix everything! I believe the perfect blend of the ingredients it’s the key for an amazing wok!

Last, but not least, we are going to add the soybean sprouts and we are going to mix it one last time! We leave everything cooking for about 5 minutes et voilà!

 

So here it is! I’ve been obsessing over this lately. If you want, you can add curry and cumin. It tastes SO good. And you can add broccoli, too. I’ve been trying some alternatives to this dish and it just keeps getting better.

Anyway, I hope you try this at home and you let me know how it goes! I would love to know what you think about this dish, so please leave me a comment in the comment section below! Have a great weekend, I know I’m going to.

See you on Monday… bye!

 

My favorite vegan meal!

Hello everybody! Today I’m bringing you the recipe to my favorite healthy vegan meal. I’m not a vegan myself, but I do recognise that eating vegan from time to time it’s good for your health and the enviroment. And besides, this meal is delicious. I’m not kidding, it’s probably my favorite meal ever.

It’s super healthy, fresh, good for any time of the year, it will make you feel full after eating it AND it’s really easy to cook!

What is it? It’s Guacamole and Rice.
What do you need? You will need one tomatoe, 1 cup of yamani rice, one avocado, lemon juice (it’s better if it’s fresh), salt and pepper.
How do you cook it? It easy!
First you boil the rice for half an hour, once it’s done you let it cool for a while. While the rice is cooling, you can start with the avocado. First you want to smash the avocado. 

Then you want to add the lemon juice (in my case I use half a lemon) and then you want to chop the tomatoe and add it to the mix. Now it’s your turn to spice it up the way you like it (I use salt and pepper). Use as much as you like but remember, the lemon juice makes everything taste stronger. Be sure to check from time to time so you don’t go overboard with the salt.

And last but not least we add the yamani rice (it should be cold or warm -Do not add it if it’s hot, let it cool a little bit more!) and mix everything together.

And that’s it! You can add chopped onion if you want. Since I’m not an onion fan I didn’t add it, but you’re free to try it. I hope you try this recipe and I hope you love it as much as I do! Let me know if you cook this and tell me what you think! See you next time… bye!
