The holidays have arrived, so it is time to whip out some hearty dishes! This rice is perfect for your Thanksgiving menu. It is filling, creamy, flavor packed and easy to make.
This is not just any cream sauce, this sauce is:
Yes! It is possible to enjoy a decadent dish and still keep to your whole foods plant-based diet. In fact, it is possible to enjoy a WHOLE Vegan and Gluten-free Thanksgiving dinner that is packed with flavor and nutrition. You won’t miss the turkey, and you will feel a lot better than you would if you enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving menu.
What I love most about this dish is the infused rice.
When cooking the rice, add to your rice cooker (or stove top pot): 1 sprig of thyme, 1/2 tbsp ofcoconut aminos or tamari and a bay leaf. Woah! These flavors infuse into the rice and make it so much more delicious. I make this rice without the sauce as a dish on the regular now since it easily spices things up for dinner. (You can replace the coconut aminos or tamari with regular soy sauce if you have that on hand)
