Pilaf is a comforting, one-pot dish of seasoned rice sure to keep you full and satisfied for long. Almost every country has its own recipe, from the Middle East to the Caribbean, with countless variations and ingredient combinations.
Also known as pilau or pulao, pilaf rice is a simple meal that consists of rice cooked in stock with a blend of tasty spices, meat and vegetables.
We made our Thai pilaf vegan with a delightful combo of brown rice, green beans, and red peppers, all seasoned with lemongrass, turmeric, and lime. The key to a perfect pilaf is to keep the rice grains well separated, so we recommend using basmati and rinse it well to remove the excess starch.
Easy-to-make and incredibly nutritious, this rice dish is an ideal midweek recipe that all your family will love. What's great about it is that you can store any leftovers and pack them for your next day lunch box.
A bowl of this spicy Thai rice makes a healthy vegan meal that bursts with fibres, slow-digesting carbs, and proteins. Each serving has 300 calories, a whopping 28% RDI of fibres and only 10% of fats. Awesome!
