Fried rice with sugar snap peas and cashew nuts (vegan)
Today I would like to introduce you to one of my favourite (almost) one-pot dishes: Fried rice with vegetables and a soy-peanut sauce.
Rice works with almost everything: whether Mediterranean, Oriental or Asian - everyone can get a taste for it. Moreover, rice is also very healthy. It contains little fat, but valuable complex carbohydrates. In addition, important fibres ensure healthy digestion and minerals such as iron, magnesium and zinc promote the metabolism and relieve the cardiovascular system.
What I particularly like about this Asian-influenced recipe is that the dish tastes nice and spicy and not boring, despite the rather economical ingredients. Those who like it nutty will get their money's worth. The fact that the rice is fried is a nice change to the cooked standard variant.
This vegan rice pan does not only convince with the fresh vegetables paprika, zucchini and mangetout. Cashews bring that certain crunch and a nice, nutty aroma, which is rounded off by the peanut-soy sauce. That's why fried rice like this is not only ideal for lunch or dinner, but is also a great Mealprep dish!
