Vegan Brown Rice Stew

 

NUTRITIONAL FACTS

 

    • Amount per Serving
    • Calories 100.5g
    • Fats: 3.1g
    • Cholesterol: 0.0mg
    • Total Carbohydrate: 15.2g
    • Protein: 2.9g

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

    • 1 glass full of lentils (here small and blond)
    • 1 glass full of brown rice
    • ½ pound of broccoli
    • 5 carrots
    • 1 leek
    • 1 small onion
    • 4 garlic cloves
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 pound of cherry tomato
    • 1 or 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of spices of your choice (here tandoori)
    • 2 sheets of dried kombu (flat seaweed)

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

    • The night before, soak the brown rice in water after rinsing it. This operation is not obligatory but it makes it possible to reduce the cooking time of brown rice.
    • Peel and cut the carrots into small pieces.
    • Chop a small onion and 4 cloves of garlic and sauté them in the olive oil for one minute.
    • Add the broccoli washed and cut into half small florets with the tail peeled and cut into small cubes and mix.
    • Add the washed and sliced leek as well as the carrot pieces and mix well.
    • Add the brown rice, drained and rinsed one last time. Rinse the lentils under running water in a fine strainer to remove all traces of dust.
    • Pour 4 cups of water into the pot. Everything must be submerged. During cooking, you can add liquid if necessary.
    • Cut the kombu leaves with a pair of scissors and put them in the pot. Cover and simmer gently for about 45 minutes. This seaweed has the property of accelerating the cooking of brown rice and lentils.
    • Add the tomato puree to the pot. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and mix (according to your taste, a tablespoon or two)
    • Then season with the spices. I chose tandoori because it is a spice that is both fragrant and spicy, but you can also choose curry spices for couscous). Cook covered for another 30 minutes and serve hot.

    • Total Carbohydrate: 19.3g
    • Protein: 9g

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

    • 2 cup(s), (shelled), cooked Edamame
    • 1 Zucchini, uncooked, diced
    • 2 tsps of minced garlic
    • 2 tsp of uncooked green onion(s)
    • 6 tbsp(s), minced, divided
    • 1 tbsp of miso paste
    • 1 tbsp(s), of red dark sesame oil
    • 1 tbsp(s) of Sriracha Hot Sauce
    • 1 teaspoon(s) or more of cornstarch, to taste
    • 1 package of round wonton wrappers
    • 3 round-shaped, sliced carrots, uncooked
    • 2 tbsp(s), minced green cabbage, uncooked

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

    • Combine the edamame, zucchini and garlic in a food processor; Pulse until chunky. Add (1/4 cup) green onions, miso, oil and Sriracha sauce; pulse to mix, scraping down sides of bowl, until everything is well blended. You should have 2 1/4 cups of filling.
    • Lightly dust a parchment-lined work surface with cornstarch. Take dough in your hand and spread 1 heaping tablespoon of the edamame filling on it, leaving 1/8 in on each side. Gather and fold the dough around the filling, leaving a small opening at the top. Place the dumplings on the parchment paper and continue with the remaining dough. Cover the dumplings with a kitchen towel to prevent them from drying out. Sprinkle the top of each dumpling with a few sliced carrot pieces and the remaining sliced green onions.
    • Place 2 cabbage leaves at the bottom of a metal or bamboo steamer. Arrange the dumplings on the sheets in a single layer, spacing them 1/2 inch apart and leaving a space of 1 inch from the edge of the daisy. The size of your daisy will determine how many dumplings can be cooked at one time.
    • Bring a pot of water to a boil, covering it. Carefully lay out the daisy, cover and steam until the batter becomes translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Carefully remove the dumplings from the steamer and steam the remaining dumplings, replacing the cabbage leaves and adding boiling water as needed. Serve immediately and enjoy your dish!
