Chicken Sausages & Shrimps Paella

Chicken Sausages & Shrimps Paella

Chicken sausages and shrimps paellaHi!
This is another one of my left overs inspired recipes. It does not require complicated ingredients, it is quick to make and you can cook a big batch for the week. It is not the traditional paella but it is very savory and healthy. I added a bit of Turmeric to it for extra health benefit (see my Turmeric and Zucchini Turkey Meatballs recipe to learn more about the benefits of using Turmeric).

Mr. Rice and me…

I always had issues with cooking rice. I just cannot consistently cook good rice. It is either mushy and overcooked or hard and undercooked, but it is rarely perfect. Having a Caribbean background, I admit this is quite shameful. I know you might think this is ridiculous as rice is one of the simplest and easiest things to cook, but for some reasons, I don't get it. I really don't. Even my relatives tried to show me times and times again but, I am telling you, this is a lost case.

So, because Mr. Rice and I are not the best of friends, I turned to cauliflower rice. It is simple, quick and my success rate is always 100%. Yay! The rice is entirely made of cauliflower; it is basically shredded cauliflower. It is used instead of regular rice so it is an excellent way to integrate more vegetables to your diet. If you are not sure how to make cauliflower rice, I suggest you take a look at the Inquiring Chef's guide on how to make light and fluffy cauliflower rice. It really only takes 5 minutes to make in the food processor.

I am sharing with you here my Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe. If you like it, please let us know in the comment box below.  Remember to tag @vic.r_c  if you share it on Instagram. We would love to see how it turned out for you.

Black Bean Vegan Burgers

Although I do not call myself a vegan, I do enjoy a good vegan burger from time to time. I have tasted a few over the years and I figured it was time for me to make my own. It might appear simple to make a veggie patty but in reality, it is quite complicated to find the perfect combination. The issue I encountered during my countless trials had to do with the texture of the patty. For some reasons, it was always mushy in the middle. Let me tell you, I ingested a lot of mushy patties during my testing. I did not want my husband to eat it and tell me he would never eat veggie burgers again, so I ate them all.   

When I finally got it to the taste and texture I wanted, I gave some to my husband. He tried it and he liked them a lot! Hurray, it passed the test and we will eat vegan burgers again! 

I am now sharing the recipe with you. Hope you like them as much as we do. If you do, let us know leaving a comment in the box below. Don’t forget to tag @vic.r_c if you share it on Instagram, so we can see how it turned out for you.
