I eat a lot of rice/vegetable mixes as a vegan, and I like them. I was thinking that I might try a more Asian approach sometimes though. I love going and getting Chinese Japanese/Thai, but I never really know what the sauce is. I've tried putting soy sauce on white rice, but It doesn't seem sweet enough. Some type of Teriyaki sauce maybe? What do I look for at the store? Any advice? Thanks.

One word: Sriracha!!! This stuff rules the school, as far as sauces go. It's not teriyaki, but oh so good.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it's spicy. I also forget (often) that not everyone likes really hot, spicy foods like I do.

But, mmmmmm....

It's at least worth trying even if you don't like spicy food.

If you like sweet, you might like coconut rice. It's yummy and really easy to make:

Coconut Rice

From “Chinese Kitchen” by Linda Doeser, publised in 2001.


Serves 4-6


2 cups jasmine rice (or long grain)

1 cup of water

2 cups unsweetened coconut milk

1/2 teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of sugar (raw vegan is fine, or your favourite substitute)

(optional) fresh shredded coconut for garnish

1. Wash the rice in several changes of cold water until it runs clear. Place the water, coconut, milk, salt and sugar in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. (Note: the washing is not completely necessary, but it changes the texture a little).

2. Add the rice, cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the rice is tender to the bite and cooked through.

3. Turn off the heat and allow the rice to rest in the saucepan for 5-10 minutes.

4. Fluff up the rice with chopsticks before serving.

There's this really great stuff called pork sung that I used to eat as a kid (when I ate meat), and it's this crunchy/crispy topping kinda (teriyaki-flavored)'s hard to imagine what it's like unless you've had it. I just found a vegetarian version lately, and it's REALLY good on rice. If you have any asian markets around you, I'd suggest looking for it. If you look for the pork sung, they'd have it around that, but not sure if the vegetarian one will be hard to find. They also have some seasoned seaweed bits that you can sprinkle on your rice that's pretty good for a subtle effect. Vegetable curries are also really good with rice. If you want something simple, you could always go to an asian market and browse through the sauce aisle. Black bean sauce is good, but I'm not sure if it's vegan. You could also cook your own soy sauce by simmering it with a bit of garlic bits, sweet onion, a bit of sugar,'s a really easy way to customize your own teriyaki-esque sauce.

Hope that helped!

I love making peanut sauces and tahini sauces and tossing them into rice right when it's down cooking. Peanut sauce is made pretty easily using some peanut butter, sesame oil, soy sauce, water, garlic, ginger, and whatever else, and tahini sauce with tahini, water, lemon juice, salt, and maybe some garlic and whatever other flavoring you may wish.
