Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!

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:

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.
Vegetables cleaned and cut for the oven
Oven vegetables cooked raw on the baking sheet and cut

3. Vegetables from the Oven

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

My recommendation is:
