One-pot coconut veggie rice - vegan

Keep it simple! This is a super easy yet super delicious recipe. For me this has become a go to recipe during lockdown because I got bored of cooking all the time (yes even me!). So this will come especially handy for when you don't fancy spending lots of time in your kitchen, yet fancy some wholesome, satisfying and nutritious food. This is one of the easiest recipes I've ever made, there is barely any chopping involved, yet it's super enjoyable!


In fact this recipe is so easy that I broke my own speed record editing the video. So definitely check it out and let me know what you think in the comments. In fact I was also a bit in a rush filming the video that I forgot to take lots of pics. But I hope the ones below and the video will give you a good indication of the deliciousness of this dish ;-)

vegan coconut rice recipe, all prepared in one pot


I added crushed dry-roasted peanuts on top but you can also used normal peanuts or any type of nuts or seeds like toasted almond flakes, which are really easy to prepare and yummy:

Heat up some oil in a pan, add walnuts and carefully toast for a few minutes while constantly stirring - careful they burn quickly, so don't turn up the heat too much. Season with salt and sprinkle over the coconut veggie rice.

Step 1:

Chop up 1/2 an onion (red or white, doesn't matter). Then add some oil to a medium size pot and sauté the onion with 1 heaped tsp of minced garlic until the onion has softened.


Step 2:

Add all ingredients into the pot and stir. I added the boiling water last in the video but you can add it first actually. It doesn't matter really, just make sure you don't burn any of the ingredients.

By the way, you can use any mixed veggies you have at home. The recipe is designed to be as simple and adaptable as possible. 

Then give it a good stir, place a lid on top and cook for 15 min (or until the rice has cooked). Stir every now and then so that the rice doesn't burn. If need be add a small amount of extra water.


Step 3:

While the rice is cooking crush some dry roasted peanuts (the ones you can get in any shop). You can either do that with a mortar and pestle, or throw them in a smoothie blender and give it a quick blitz.


Serve the rice in a bowl and sprinkle some dry roasted crushed peanuts on top for protein. Enjoy!
