But black rice also called "forbidden" rice or purple rice is my new must-try fave! Here is why: It contains all the fiber, texture and 'less processed' goodness of brown rice.

Vegan Cooking 101: Pantry Basics In vegan cooking, pantry staples are essential. They allow us to turn a few fresh veggies into a satisfying and nom nom nom meal in two shakes of a lamb’s tail—a happy lamb, because he knows he won’t be on the menu at your house. There are a bazillion things a vegan will eventually have bursting out of her cabinets (and spice racks and closets and the back steps because we ran out of room), but if you’re just getting started, this list of necessities will go a long way. Oil There are almost as many oils as there are stars in the sky, but olive oil, vegetable oil and coconut oil will get you any place you need to be. Use them to sauté, roast, and drizzle on everything and even rub all over yourself for smooth supple skin.

Food, In The Main... When I tasted cornbread for the first time (I made it myself) I have to say that I was not particularly impressed – it was so bland! Now, I know that at that point, I considered all foods bland that were not chilli-hot. That’s an attitude endemic to (most of) us Indians because so much of our food contains chillies and/or strong spices and flavourings. If you’re used to loading vegetables with lots of masala, for instance, plain boiled green beans with just salt and pepper would definitely be termed as “bland”. It’s not just vegetarians, either – even non-veg Indians find it difficult to face plain roasted chicken (or other meat)… they usually like their meat cooked in a spicy sauce or maybe coated in a fiery masala.
