I'm always veganizing recipes that I love...so...I'm working my way
through all of the amazing recipes in Julia Child's
Mastering the Art of French Cooking...
...making a Vegan Version of each one...... sometimes successfully - sometimes not...Recipe Count 285/524 (from Julie's count)...but really 659

...VEGAN PACKAGED PRECOOKED RICE...

...once again...like with the Sucre Glace...I thought it was funny that this recipe was included...
...following the directions...
...just mix with salt and boiling water and let stand for 5 minutes...
...that's all there was to that...
...then, according to Julia...it can be made more 'interesting' with the addition of some onions or shallots sautéed with some butter (Earth Balance)...
...the precooked rice is certainly fluffy and separate...but even with the addition of the onions it had a bit of a processed (cardboard) taste...I think making perfect steamed rice [RIZ À L'INDIENNE - RIZ À LA VAPEUR] is quite simple enough...and I'm wondering how I'm going to use the rest of the box...

Substitutions:

Earth Balance for Butter - for sautéing the onions...none for the actual rice...

...some MtAoFC housekeeping...

...since I started this blog I've been using the total of recipes from Julie's count for the book Julie and Julia...524 recipes in 365 days...which is (of course) an amazing feat...however...
...I finally made a spreadsheet of the recipes in MtAoFC...and...
...you guessed it...there are a lot more than 524...

...672 by my count...

...of which...I've 'veganized' 182 and counting...

...glad that's all cleared up...

~Have a lovely day!
