Going meatless does not necessarily mean eating mounds of fresh greens and plates of steamed vegetables deprived of taste and flavor. There are wonderful ways of cooking plant-based ingredients that will even make you wonder why you have been sleeping on these dishes for the longest time.
Since rice is a staple in the Philippines, it’s fitting to create something that everyone is familiar with and that everyone eats. One of the things we love to make is our Green Curry Fried Rice.
For the ingredients, you just need:
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 medium white onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp green curry paste
- 4 brown button mushroom, chopped
- 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables – green peas, corn, carrots
- 1 tsp ginger, ground
- 2 cups rice, cooked
- 1 cup quinoa, cooked
- 2 tsbps soy sauce
- fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
Here’s a video to show you how we made this dish:
We put our all-time favorite fruit, avocado, and baked tofu as add-ons. Feel free to add whatever side dishes you like.
