When I think of comfort food it definitely involves a creamy texture. This one just uses a little bit of vegan cream cheese per serving which makes it a lot less naughty.
You can, as always, substitute veggies in this dish depending on your individual tastes.
I used Lotus Foods Jade Rice Noodles* to keep it gluten free. But feel free to use any type of preferred rice/noodle/grain.
*Make sure you buy the Ramen Cakes, not soup.
Eggplant is such a versatile veggie! It takes on the flavor of other ingredients but has its own texture. Eggplant is also an excellent source of fiber, B1, B6 and Vitamin K.
This combination of the veggies, sauce and coconut rice is amazing. However, if you are not a fan of any of these 3 veggies you can also experiment with other options.
There are a gazillion recipes for coconut rice available but I prefer mine that eliminates using any sugar.
I used to think the correct way to pronounce Broccoli Rabe was RAW-BAY. I remember that every time my godfather pronounced it Broccoli ROB, I chuckled to myself. When I realized I was the one mispronouncing it, I decided to make up for my mistake by using it as key ingredient in numerous recipes!
Anyway, Potato/Potatoe, Broccoli Rabe is all sorts of delicious. This recipe a great red and green main or side dish to serve during the holidays.
