Vegan Rice Omelette

Vegan Rice Omelette

Many argue that cooking vegan food is not that easy because one has to pay close attention to its preparation, but, according to my personal experience, there are little secrets for cooking successful vegan food. For example you can prepare different dishes a few days before and store them in the fridge in watertight containers, to preserve the freshness and the taste of the ingredients. Furthermore, one can even use lunch left-overs and transform them into new tasty dishes.

Yesterday, for example, I prepared some Basmati rice and pumpkin omelettes that I am going to eat tonight. For this recipe, I will sauté pumpkin with some ​​onion and sage, combine it with some rice and dip the dough in some chickpea flour to get a crisp surface with a soft and tasty heart. It is important to say that, Basmati rice contains a lower glycemic index, a more delicate taste and is more digestible for the content of a particular starch, than other type of rice, so I prefer it to the common one.
