Fast dinner: Eggplant Rice and Vegan Broccoli Salad


Writing the post is almost longer than preparation.

Oh, I love this vegan broccoli salad. Simple and yummy, it is full of fiber and baby friendly. Steam some broccoli, add diced green apple and dried red currants (if available), a tablespoon of grapeseed veganaise, and voila.

Cube young eggplant, sautee with onions, add a bit of tomato paste and oregano. Add the rice to the skillet and sautee a little long. You could add an egg for protein. (We didn’t this night.) For protein, we had some yoghurt.

What a delicious way to livin' up rice :). I've only had eggplant once, believe it or not, and when I did, it was quite was actually an Italian dish, so the tomato paste in your recipe works great!

I made the vegan broccoli salad today but added some grated carrot and mixed some dijon mustard with the nayonaise. Kids loved it!
