Vegan & Gluten Free Mexican Fried Rice

Fried rice, this word itself makes me hungry, am an ardent fan of Indo chinese fried rice, obviously if i cross any new variety of fried rice, i dont forget to bookmark it immediately. Recently Vaishali of Ribbons to Pastas posted an easy breezy Mexican fried rice, i immediately bookmarked it and tried it yesterday for our lunch. Its a simple, super quick, delicious, flavourful rice with bellpepper, corn kernels. If you have cooked rice aside, then this rice dish will take definitely less than 10 minutes to get ready. Thanks Vaishali for sharing this aromatic Mexican fried rice, we finished our lunch happily with some fryums.

Vegan Black-eyed Peas Tomato Stew

After two interesting soups, my today's post is a super delicious again a nutritious stew i simply prepared with black eyed peas and tomatoes.Stews are similar to soups as there is no clear distinction between these two dishes. Stews have less liquid than soups and much thicker as well. Stew needs a longer cooking in low heat and soups can be cooked easily which requires less cooking time than stews. Stew can be served in a plate with rice, mashed potatoes or pastas while soups are always served in a bowl. You can add seasoning or flavourings to the stew depending upon your tastebuds. Actually i flavored mine with minced garlic, cumin powder, paprika and coriander powder along with dried oregano. Obviously this stew makes an excellent pair to enjoy with hot steaming rice.
