Ranch Rice

Posted by trktos on 16-February-2009

I’m calling this “ranch” with no real memory of what “ranch” used to taste like … anyway, it makes a quick, tasty side-dish or a tasty lunch-on-the-run.


  • rice
  • avocado
  • nutritional yeast
  • vegan sour cream
  • onion, garlic powder to taste
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • dash soy sauce
  • Earth Balance and/or vegan cream cheese (optional)


  • Cook rice.
  • Cube avocado.
  • Combine all ingredients.


  • I usually cook about 250 g dry rice, and eat half of it with half an avocado, saving the rest for another meal. With this amount, I use about 1 1/2 tbsp vegan sour cream and maybe 2 tbsp nutritional yeast.
