This vegan tomato rice (or arroz de tomate) recipe is one of the naturally vegan ones; despite it being very typical to eat in a Portuguese household.
Back in the ancient times when I used to eat meat, arroz de tomate was a great way of eating rice.
What does tomato rice go well with?
It pairs well with stews, salads, and saltfish dishes in typical Portuguese cuisine. Having gone vegan, I’ve found this rice specifically pairs well with stewed lentils, refried beans and even with other side dishes such as patatas bravas.
If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can try to attempt a veganised saltfish recipe – to pair perfectly with the flavours of tomato rice, something we’re yet to perfect.
For this vegan tomato rice recipe you don’t need many ingredients; it’s pretty quick and easy to prepare, with most required ingredients likely lying in your pantry.
