Oven Baked Rice and Vegetables (ONE PAN!!) #vegetarian #dinner

Soft prepared rice and broiler cooked vegetables, all heated in one container? Truly YOU CAN! The veggie juices dribble down into the rice while it's heating so it ingests such additional flavor. It resembles free vegetable stock. While this Oven Baked Rice and Vegetables is incredible as a side, I typically have it as a supper!

At the point when you prepare the rice and simmered vegetables in a single dish, actually there is just so a lot of veggies that get the advantage of the delightful broiler cooking burn. So when you are spreading the veggies over the highest point of the rice, make a point to be reasonable! Get a touch of each sort of veggies superficially so you get some roast.

Furthermore, for those veggies that can live without being broiled, similar to carrots, broccoli and peas, cook them IN the rice, as opposed to superficially, or push them down under different veggies. Leave the surface for veggies that truly advantage from being saut̩ed in the broiler Рin my reality, that incorporates: onions, zucchinis, cauliflower, capsicum/ringer peppers.

Oven Baked Rice and Vegetables (ONE PAN!!) #vegetarian #dinner

Ingredients
RICE:

  • 1 ½ cups long grain rice (or basmati or jasmine) (Note 1 for other rice types)
  • 1 ½ cups / 375 ml chicken or vegetable broth (I use chicken)
  • 1 ¼ cups / 315 ml water
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 2 medium carrots , cut into 1 cm thick slices, larger pieces halved
  • 30g / 2 tbsp unsalted butter (optional)

ROASTING VEGETABLES (NOTE 2):

  • 1 red onion , halved and cut into wedges
  • 1 capsicum / bell pepper , cut into 2.5cm / 1" pieces
  • 1/2 small cauliflower , broken into florets
  • 2 zucchini , cut into 2cm / 4/5" chunks
  • 2 corn cobs , each cut into 3 (6 small cobs)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil , plus more for drizzling

SPICE MIX:

  • 1 ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp thyme or other dried herb of choice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (or onion powder)
  • 1 tsp salt (Note 3 for low sodium)
  • 1 tsp pepper , plus extra

GARNISH (OPTIONAL):

  • Finely chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/390F (standard) / 180C/350F (fan / convection).
  2. Mix Spice Mix in a small bowl.
  3. Place Rice ingredients in a baking dish (including the carrots), about 23 x 30 cm /  9 x 13". Add 1 1/2 tsp Spice Mix. Stir, cover with foil, bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place Roasting Vegetable ingredients in a large bowl, drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil. Sprinkle over remaining Spice Mix. Mix well - hands are best for this.
  5. Remove rice from oven.
  6. Turn oven UP to 220C/430F (standard) / 200C/390F (fan / convection).
  7. Take off foil. Spread the Roasting Vegetables on top of the rice. Make sure there's a bit of each type of vegetable on the surface. Push corn mostly under.
  8. Drizzle with more oil (optional), sprinkle with more pepper.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, rest for 5 - 10 minutes.
  10. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Push vegetables aside, fluff rice and toss it through the vegetables a bit (rice gets more flavour). Serve!

Recipe Notes:
1. This recipe is best made with white long grain rice because it's less sticky than short and medium grain. Basmati and jasmine will also work - same cook time. Risotto and paella rice are not suitable. Brown rice will take about 1 hr 10 minutes in the oven. So bake covered in foil for 40 minutes, then spread over vegetables and bake for a further 30 minutes.
2. OTHER VEGETABLES: You can use any vegetables that you want for this recipe that are suitable for roasting, but you'll need to cut them to size so they roast in 30 minutes. Or you could add them with the carrots at the beginning of the recipe, in which case they need to be able to hold up to a full 50 minutes baking time.
When choosing veggies, bear in mind that there is only so much surface area and only those veggies on the top will get charred like traditional roasted veggies. That is why I choose to cook the carrots in the rice and to push most of the corn under - they are tasty even without being browned from the roasting. 
For vegetables that cook quickly like asparagus and green beans, toss them on top for the last 15 minutes of bake time (otherwise they'll be a soggy mess).
3. If you would like to lower the sodium in this, use low sodium broth and reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp and increase the garlic powder and thyme by 1/2 tsp each.
4. YOGHURT SAUCE: The roasted veg are juicy and the rice is seasoned so I don't need a sauce with this. However, if serving the next day, the rice does tend to be drier so a sauce is nice. I normally just use a mix of yoghurt + lemon + olive oil.
