Tofu is amazing! However, not by itself. To me, the stuff straight out of the package is somewhat disgusting. It deserves to be baked, fried, broiled, sauteed and blackened.
I love garlic but when cooking with it there is a fine line between getting it crispy and burning it. Make sure to keep the heat at a medium-high temperature and be sure to keep stirring it when cooking.
I had some fresh basil and cilantro that on hand so I decided to toss it in the rice. The result was YUM!
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.
Veggie burgers are not just for summer. This recipe is perfect for this time of year because they are best cooked on a stove top. They are also healthier than most vegan burgers I have tried because of the beans and quinoa.
I recommend serving alongside fresh veggies. Also, use any leftovers the next day on top of a salad for a crunchy-satisfying meal.
I also like to serve mine with a slice of Chao Cheese, tomato and a simple sauce made with 1/2 cup Follow Your Heart Pesto Vegenaise and 1/4 cup Sriracha.
