Green Rice: VeganMoFo #4



I am a Veganwannabe: Post # 4

I’ve been making this side dish for years. The original recipe comes from Taste of Home Magazine circa 1990. I served it with sauteed cherry tomatoes and for kicks I threw in some scallions – wow, were they great! Super sweet and very tender. Perfect as a side dish and hearty enough for a meal. You can't believe how much flavor this has! 

Here’s what you need:
1 C chopped scallions
1 C minced parsley
4 t olive oil
4 t non-dairy butter
1 ½ C white rice
3 C vegetable broth
1/8 t cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf

Here’s what you do:
Sautee the scallions and parsley in oil and butter until soft – about 1 minute. Add rice and cook until the rice in nice and coated. Stir in the broth, cayenne and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, simmer for about 20 minutes.

Sautee cherry tomatoes and scallions in a bit of oil until tender and serve as a garnish to the rice.
