Welcome to Iron Chef: VB 2.0!

This months theme ingredient is
Rice!


Consumed as a staple food for most cultures around the world, rice is responsible for around 1/5 of the total calories consumed by all people worldwide. Rice is a versatile ingredient used for many different cuisines and dishes, and is in pretty much everyone's kitchen.

Definition of rice:
for this competition, Im going to keep it as broad as possible to encourage creativity. The dish should have rice as a prominent ingredient, but does not have to be a rice based dish.

Things like rice milk, rice flour, rice noodles, puffed rice, mochi, and anything else where rice is used prominently to end with that final product count as ingredients that can be used as the prominent rice ingredient. You may use wild rice (its technically a seed, but has similar applications to rice in some dishes).

Rules:

1/ No less than two, and no more than five dishes. For simplicitys sake, a main dish, and side dish count as two dishes, as would a drink or dessert.

2/ Ingredients used must be easily veganized by substitution or omission- just be sure to document the substitutions.

3/ Illustrate your process with text and photos. Include photos of preparing the dish as well as the final plated product.

4/ No heavy use of commercially available meat/dairy/egg substitutes. If it is specifically meant to mimic something, make it yourself or dont use it. I'll allow small quantities of stuff like veganaise and stuff like this- but it shouldn't be a prominent thing, rather, it should be an accent to a dish.

Exceptions to this include alternative milks, seasoning mixes/broth powders and things like tofu, tempeh, seitan, TVP or something crazy youve made yourself. If you can manage to make something that looks remarkably like something commercially available, this is completely fine. Show us how to make it!

5/ Submissions will be accepted from today, Monday August 22 to Monday September 5. Voting will follow shortly after and will last approximately a week.

Prizes:

1st prize will be a $15 gift certificate to Amazon.com, Vegan Essentials, or another similar store, or perhaps a gift basket featuring some of the strange and wonderful local food of my home state. (I live in one of the most hippie tastic college cities in the midwest, and we have surprising amounts of awesome local food.)

Chairmans pick: if a VBer puts in effort and creativity into making their entry that stands out to me, but doesn't win first prize, I will make an effort to recognize them with something special from where I live. This might be assorted teas or coffees local to me, or perhaps something weird like a painting of a chicken.

To enter, make a thread with your entry and post the link to it in this thread. If you don't put the link in this thread, I may not see it and put it in the final poll, so it is in your best interests to link it in here- I don't want to accidentally leave someone out.

If you have any questions, post in this thread and I'll respond to them here.

To clarify, these must be original recipes, yes?

Thanks for doing this, it looks like it will be a lot of fun!

Using someone else's recipes is fine, as long as you credit the original author.

I made some really tasty rice dishes the past few days, but unfortunately I wasn't thinking of this thread or I would have taken pictures before they became much less attractive cold leftovers in my fridge.... I think I'll have to get in on the next one.

Has anyone entered this? Or planning on it?
I'm sitting this ingredient out. Maybe the next one, assuming my camera phone still takes pictures.
