Veganuary Back to Work: Day 4

Hello! Hope you have been enjoying the menus so far! Today’s menu looks like this:

Coconut rice is a recent obsession of mine. It’s so ridiculously creamy and because of the savoury addition of lightly fried onions it is well-balanced and not too sweet. It really doesn’t need anything other than your favourite stir-fried vegetables with some ginger and soy sauce. I like to garnish with spring onions and lime wedges for a fresh bite but this is optional!

Coconut Rice Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp Vitalite
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt

Method:

  1. Gently sauté the onions in the sunflower oil and Vitalite on a low heat until translucent.
  2. Stir in the rice, coating it in the oil and Vitalite.
  3. Add the coconut milk, water and salt.
  4. Bring nearly to the boil and simmer with the lid on, stopping to stir occasionally until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender and creamy.

Serve with stir fried veg in ginger and soy sauce.
