Rice with Spinach, Hazelnuts and Yoghurt

8 Jan

From tumblr:

“Q: Why is ‘it’s nearly impossible to gain weight if you’re naturally thin’ a commonly accepted fact, while ‘it’s nearly impossible to lose weight if you’re naturally fat’ is an ~excuse~?

A: Because beauty standards have become a moral issue masquerading as a health concern.”

This post is just a quickie. The idea for this recipe came from my 3 year old niece, who always has yoghurt mixed into her rice whenever she has a curry for the extra cooling effect.


We cooked some basmati rice the normal way (wash the rice first, use 2 cups water to 1 cup rice, bring to the boil, cover, and simmer until the rice is steamed soft) with some added dill seeds and a dash of salt. After the rice is cooked, we added toasted dill seed, spinach cut into strips, toasted hazelnuts, a big pot of vegan yoghurt, pepper and salt to season, and cherry tomatoes to garnish. Lovely.
