Vegan Spring Onion Rice


If you’re tired of eating the same side dishes every day, it’s time to spice up things a little. I guarantee that the whole family will love this. I am not a big fan of onions, but this one has become my new favorite. It has the perfect amount of savory flavor (veggie broth, sesame) and fresh notes (lemon, herbs). As expected, this dish is super quick and easy to handle—and it easily complements any type of cuisine.
