Rice with vegetables and soya sauce is an easy rice dish from Thailand. It’s great after a long day at work because it’s simple to make but nutritious as well. You can use whichever vegetables you prefer – we have chosen carrot, leek, onion, and zucchini, but you could also add broccoli, cauliflower, or mushrooms. Be creative and follow your own palette. Carrots contain many vitamins, including B, C, E, and K. They’re rich in fibre, magnesium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, copper, and zinc.

Silver rice with vegetables in soya sauce

The sauce is the key to this recipe. We mix in ginger, chili, garlic, cinnamon, lime, and garlic to create a spicy taste. Serve with silver rice – a wholemeal rice with a mild, nutty flavour. Many say silver rice is more nutritious than white rice thanks to the perishable fats in its bran and germ, which are removed in the preparation of white rice.
