Brussels Sprouts Fried Rice

Brussels Sprouts Fried Rice from VWAV by Isa Moskowitz

I put Brussels sprouts in everything. Even fried rice is not safe from that little cruciferous flavor bomb! And until someone invents an even more awesome vegetable, I will continue to overuse them. Not that anyone is complaining. This version of fried rice is wonderfully aromatic with the addition of fresh herbs and scallions. And a small handful of pine nuts goes a long way to adding another decadent layer of flavor. You can top the dish with some gingery tofu, or toss in some browned tofu, if you’d like it to be an entrée. Or simply serve in addition to a bigger Thai-inspired spread.

Baked Coconut Rice Pudding

Coconut rice pudding recipe

My kids have such a soft spot in their hearts for rice pudding that we sometimes have it for breakfast instead of dessert. This is a fun new flavor twist on an old-fashioned dessert. It will keep for several days refrigerated and is just as delicious served chilled.Reprinted with permission from Vegan Casseroles © 2014 by Julie Hasson, Running Press, a member of the Perseus Books Group.

Gallo Pinto Especial

Gallo pinto recipe

Gallo Pinto is the national dish of Costa Rica, which is the first place I ate it. It was served at every hostel I stayed at, fresh for breakfast and available all day long. It translates to “speckled rooster,” supposedly called that because of color contrast of the beans mixed with the rice. Whatever the reason, it’s a simple dish of rice and beans that tastes damn good. This is my version, kicked up just a bit. Recipe contributed by Jason Wyrick from The Vegan Taste.

Chinese-Style Vegetable Stir-Fried Rice

Chinese vegetable fried rice

Chinese-style stir-fried rice, filled with lots of veggies, is an easy and tasty side dish to serve with Asian-style vegetable and tofu dishes. It’s a great way to use up leftover brown rice, too. On the rare occasions when my family gets Chinese take-out, there’s always a lot of leftover rice, and this is usually the way it gets repurposed!
