Vegetable Rice Bowl – a Rice Dish with Oven Vegetables – quick and delicious to prepare in Variations…

Welcome to my post about the Vegetable Rice recipe. This is a finely spiced rice dish with oven vegetables which is easy and fast!

I like rice – in all variations. In the Asian kitchen Basmati rice and Jasmine rice are especially popular. Basmati rice is a bit more grainy and has an earthy aroma. Jasmine rice has a flowery aroma. I like both sorts and you can choose one for the following dish.

As a cross-over over the continents I bring you my rice dish with colorful vegetables and green herbs as a tasty main course in the bowl or bowl. It is a great and quick dinner or you can take the finished dish to the office or to a picnic and enjoy it lukewarm or cold. 

Have fun preparing the dish, enjoy it and have a good appetite!

1. Preparation for a quick Rice Dish

We treat rice and vegetables separately. I will come to the preparations of these two in the next chapters.

For your rice with vegetables you need these ingredients:

  • Basmati rice or jasmine rice
  • Paprika red and yellow
  • Leeks
  • Carrots or yellow beets
  • Salt, pepper, sugar
  • Butter
  • Oil
  • Wild garlic or parsley

Feel free to play a little with the suggested compilation. Other vegetables and herbs will also work.  With vegetables, you should make sure that the cooking times match.

Vegetable alternatives: Fennel, zucchini, small tomatoes, onion, young onions, eggplant, mushrooms or herb mushrooms

A rice Super Bowl brings the essence of joy like a Buddha Bowl – om, om, om. After the meditation I quickly fried the tomatoes in a pan as a topping and put them on top.

2. Prepare Rice

To make our rice light and loose, we should consider:

  1. Wash the rice in a fine sieve under cold running water.
  2. Cook your rice in a saucepan using the ratio of 1 part rice and 2 parts water.
  3. If you cook your rice in a rice cooker you need 2 parts rice and 3 parts water – that is 1.5 times as much water as rice by volume.
  4. Add salt to the rice water.
  5. Add softened or liquid butter to the rice only at the end.
  6. For refinement I like to use homemade ghee instead of butter
  7. Our fresh herbs are not added to the cooked rice, but finely chopped and then added to the cooked rice.

Oven vegetables raw on the baking tray: Cut the carrots thinly so that the cooking time with the remaining ingredients is appropriate.

3. Vegetables from the Oven

Our vegetables are allowed to be colourful. So this time I chose carrot, pepper and leek.

My recommendation is:

  • Cut the vegetables so that they can cook evenly in the oven.
  • Add brown sugar to the carrots and the leek possibly also to the peppers.
  • The leeks can take on a little toasted flavour. This spices up our dish phenomenally.

  • 1 pc yellow paprika fresh
  • 1 pc red paprika fresh
  • 1 bar leek
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tbs oliv oil
Prepare rice
  • Cook the rice with double the amount of water (1 part rice - 2 parts water) and the salt for about 15-20 minutes. The rice can still have a little bite, depending on taste.
  • Finely chop the wild garlic. Alternatively you can use fresh parsley.
  • Mix the cooked rice with butter and wild garlic or parsley.
Prepare the oven vegetables
  • Preheat the oven to 170° C with circulating air.
    Cover the baking tray with baking paper.
    Cut the vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Spread out the pieces finely separated on the baking tray. Season with salt and pepper. Add brown sugar to the carrots and leek. Drizzle the vegetables with some oil.
  • Cook the vegetables in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Please pay attention to the leeks and remove them if necessary before.
Decorate and serve
  • Put the rice in the bowl. Place the oven vegetables on the rice. To decorate, place caramelized small vine tomatoes in the middle of the vegetables. Bon appetit!

Alternative herbs

You can try lovage, chives, thyme and basil instead of wild garlic or parsley.

More Ideas for Refinement

Serve with the rice  basil pesto, wild garlic pesto or carrot green pesto – that tastes gorgeous!
