Vegan Italian Recipe for Rice Salad

For today’s show, we visited Italy on #LunchBreakLIVE with Cynthia Arcas cooking up an Italian rice salad in the virtual Ellora Wellness kitchen. Cynthia showed us how to specially prepare the Arborio rice for this amazing vegan Italian recipe so the grains separate, instead of sticking together.

She then prepared a panoply of powerful plants to eat, mostly raw, and mixed them with the rice. Scooping it all into an empty pepper or cabbage is a beautiful and tasty way to serve it. Cynthia not only is an ethical vegan with an eco shoe line called Arcas Bear, but she is also a great vegan chef!

Now let’s check out the amazing healthy, filling, and delicious vegan Italian meal she made on this show.  It’s a perfect meal while staying home and boosting your immune system during the Coronavirus outbreak.

This virtual trip to Italy was awesome!  I’ve always loved gluten-free Italian dishes and this one looks like it wouldn’t disappoint!  I look forward to giving it a try myself, as I’m always looking for healthy and satisfying dishes to make, especially now that I am spending way more time at home!

Look how beautiful this Italian Rice Salad is and it’s even better once it’s turned into a mouthwatering Italian stuffed pepper.
