A beautiful, lively, and light combination of five different varieties of rice, this vegan dish is the best wild rice recipe: all fancy without the trouble. What I love in this spiced wild rice mix with cauliflower are the lovely flavor and all the fresh herbs in the most flavorful black rice you've tried.

– olive oil or vegan butter – garlic, crushed – cumin powder – 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder – 1 medium onion, minced – 2 large carrots, cut into very thin strips – 1 large cauliflower head, cut into large florets – wild rice (black or red rice) – Basmati rice – boiling-hot vegetable broth – 1 tablespoon of salt (or to taste) –  minced fresh parsley


Heat the oil in the pot over medium-low heat. Add garlic, cumin powder, turmeric and onion. Sauté, stirring until the onion turns translucent. Stir in the carrot and cauliflower. Sauté stirring until they are heated through (about a minute).

Step 1:

Add the rices and stir to mix well. Season the vegetable broth with salt to taste and pour into the pot. Stir. Simmer over until almost all the liquid has evaporated, stirring frequently.

Step 2:

Lower the heat and simmer covered for 20 minutes. Uncover, stir well, and cook for another 10 minutes. Taste the rice, it should be firm but cooked through. If it's still uncooked, drizzle with 3 tablespoons of water, cover, and cook for another 10 minutes.

Step 3:

Sprinkle with the parsley, and mix. Remove the pot from the stovetop. Scoop the rice into the serving bowl, and serve.
