Summer is here, and although we always want to cook, the truth is that we want to spend less time in the kitchen and make quick and straightforward recipes, like this delicious vegan Chinese rice.

It is a relatively light dish, although we will give you an alternative to make it even more delicate if you are on a diet or if you prefer to eat with less fat; in addition, both versions are delicious.

To make this rice, you only need oil, vegetables, soy sauce or tamari, and rice, nothing else.

They are straightforward to find ingredients, and you can use whatever vegetables you want

We have added garlic, onion, carrot, peas, and corn. 

You can also add a fresh ginger or ginger powder; it gives a unique flavour to the dish.

You can use a wok for cooking it, but a regular skillet will also work. 

As for the oil, we use extra virgin olive oil because it is not refined and because it is healthier; although it has a more robust flavour and many people prefer to use another oil when cooking with soy sauce, it is a matter of taste.

The ideal is to cook the rice from one day to the next, it is how the dish comes out best and the trick of Chinese restaurants (or so they say), but you can also cook it at the moment, the grain will not be so loose, but the rice will be to suck your fingers.

Eating you use long-grain rice, our favourite is basmati, but there are many different varieties.

If you want to prepare the light version, you can also steam or cook your vegetables instead of frying them

Add a little soy sauce, and you have a very light dish with hardly any fat ready in no time, although the standard version is tastier and more affluent.

We use tamari instead of soy sauce because it is not made with wheat and does not contain gluten, but if you are not celiac or do not have a gluten-free diet, you can use it without fear. 

You can also accompany your vegan Chinese rice with sweet and sour sauce; in fact, it is the sauce they serve rice in many Chinese restaurants

Waleed likes sweet and sour sauce better, but I prefer tamari; the choice is yours.
