Creative Vegetarian Cooking with Herbs and Healthy Fats

Madagascar Pink rice with cumin seeds and cashews

You can go wild in your kitchen mixing and matching a variety of spices, nuts, healthy fats and  varieties of rice to make this quick and easy vegetarian Madagascar Pink Rice with Cashews recipe. When I developed this recipe, I researched spices and nuts that come from Madagascar to create an authentic, delicious, quick and easy vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian recipe. I enjoy cooking and eating organic Madagascar pink rice, which has an enticing color and an unusual, almost tropical flavor. And for a whole grain rice, only takes 15-20 minutes to cook.The photo above is from my  hands on cooking workshop, “Spice It Up! Creative Cooking with Herbs and Spices”. See the rice has beautiful rich color cause we used an organic fair trade red palm oil.  You can also use organic grassed raised ghee, butter, or extra virgin coconut oil, as I did in my cookbook, Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook.

Organic brown basmati or organic brown rice would also work well. You might also try other exotic varieties of rice like Bhutanese red rice, which will imbue the dish with a deep russet red color. If you use Bhutanese red rice, increase the cooking time to about 20 minutes; for basmati or brown rice, increase to about 40 minutes.

I love teaching folks how to be creative and swap ingredients to cook with the seasons and make variations of my recipes their own. To see my latest cooking class schedule or contact me for private lessons and bring your friends.
