Fragrant Rice and Loblaws Thanksgiving contest

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Loblaws and Zehrs. All opinions are 100% mine.
fragrant rice
I plan to serve a fragrant rice dish during this year's Thanksgiving meal. This recipe is simple to make and will go well with all the dishes you plan to serve. It will also go well with the sweet and spicy pineapple side dish I plan to make. Although, we can prepare the rice on the stove top I like to use the rice cooker, as it will be ready within a few minutes while we prepare the rest of the meal.

Tofu stir fried with Chinese cuisine inspired VH sauces


Tofu stir fried with VH sweet and sour sauce.


I like the variety of VH products that are available. This is a lovely way to start introducing diversity to our meals. These sauces will impress anyone. Whoever tastes the dishes made with VH sauce will know that it tastes just like the cuisine is supposed to taste. They might even think that you got take out because the food is ready within minutes.

I stir fried tofu with the VH sweet and sour sauce and VH hoisin sauce.

2 cups tofu cut into 1/2" cubes
1/2 tsp chillie powder optional
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cornstarch
oil to fry

Toss the tofu with chillie powder, salt and cornstarch. Fry it till it is golden brown and leave aside.

1 tbsp oil
3 to 4 tbsp onion
1 tbsp garlic
1 cup pepper cut into slices
2 to 3 tbsp VH sauce

Heat 1 tbsp oil, sauté the onions, garlic and colourful peppers. Then add your favourite VH sauce and toss the fried tofu. Add the tomatoes and serve warm with rice or noodles.
This tofu is stir fried with VH hoisin sauce.

Check out the range of delicious VH sauces that available and try it out.

Rice pudding


It is easy to make rice pudding with cooked rice, all you need to do is combine everything and cook on medium low heat to preferred consistency. This is a filling dessert and perfect for any season as it can be eaten cool or warm.
Ask an adult for help when using the cooker.

1 cup cooked rice
2 cups of milk
1/4 to 1/2 cup condensed milk or more to taste
1/4 tsp saffron strands
1 tsp rose water
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
1/2 cup or more combination of nuts

Cook the rice till it is soft with water and a pinch of salt, salt is optional. It is faster and easier to use fully or half cooked rice. A good way to use leftover rice.

Chop or use a mortar and pestle to coarsely break the nuts. I used almonds, pistachios and cashews. Nuts are optional.

Milk can be replaced with water and more condensed milk combined or other types of milk such as cream, soya milk.

Cardamom, saffron and rose water adds wonderful flavour, but it can be omitted.

Add milk to the cooked rice with condensed milk, cardamom, saffron and cook again on low medium heat till the rice is soft and milk has absorbed into the rice.
Consistency depends on the preference. Keep stirring frequently to make sure the milk is absorbed and to prevent burning. Add the nuts and rose water towards the end. Mix and cook for about 2 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
