Carrot Rice with Peanuts

Carrot Rice with Peanuts created by Elodie

This is an unbelievably flavourful rice recipe that almost seems a little too yummy for so few calories! I found this recice on a newsgroup, trimmed and vegetarian-ised it, and thought I'd share it with everyone here! It can easily be veganised with a suitable butter substitute.

    It wasn't what I was hoping for... I found it a little bit dry. I ended up adding both peanut butter and soy sauce. Although, the grated carrots are a great idea for any fried rice type dish.

    I'm not sure what I did. I mean it wasn't bad, it was lightly sweet with a hint of peanutty flavor. I just expected it to be more flavorful, with all the reviews. I think next time I'll add a little more ginger, and maybe try it with a natural peanut butter. Thanks for the recipe Anu

    Really good! I prepared this exactly as written and was impressed by how flavorful it was, especially considering how easy it is to prepare. I might use a little more ginger next time, but it was great as is, too. Thanks for posting this!

    I have to tell you that I was a little skeptical about this recipe. I mean, Carrot Rice? But this recipe is just what you could possibly want it to be: tasty, healthy, and something different. I made my rice in the rice cooker instead of doing it on the stove, but that was the only change. Thank you for pepping up my meal!
