The Tastiest Recipes For Rice Lovers
For some of us, there’s nothing better than a big bowl of our favourite rice dishes. From fried rice to zingy burritos, these are the best vegan recipes that are made for lovers of rice.
A takeaway favourite for you to make at home. This fried rice is fragrant and packs a punch. Using some freezer staples, it's also highly versatile and works lots of different combinations of vegetables that you may have on hand. Perfect for days you’ve got leftover rice from yesterday’s dinner because day-old rice is encouraged for this one!
Paella is an iconic dish home to Valencia but is eaten around Spain — and this recipe is here to help you recreate a vegan version of the beloved dish. Good quality stock, Spanish Paprika (ideally from Vera) and saffron strands (from Castilla la Mancha, if you can find it) are the backbones of an authentic and delicious paella. For rice lovers, this recipe has got to be bookmarked for a savoury, umami dinner perfect to share.
This Mexican-inspired wrap is perfect for lunch and dinner, and its smoky, spicy flavours are great for those who like their food with a kick. Rice in a tortilla is the only way we want to eat wraps from now on. With a fresh and zing salsa and cool and creamy avocado, this burrito is balanced and just plain beautiful.
Too often do we leave brown rice out of the spotlight, when really it deserves all of our attention. This soup is the perfect pick me up, with a fragrant stock and the delicious nutty addition of brown rice. You can make it in under 15 minutes, meaning its the ultimate weekday meal during the colder months.
Mushroom lovers and rice fiends, this one’s for you. This creamy risotto is an umami bomb due to the earthiness of the mushrooms paired with the richness of the vegetable stock. Topped with vegan parmesan cheese, this dish is perfect for all occasions — from dinner parties to family dinners, to just a cosy comfort dinner.
