Zucchini and Pesto Rice Timbale (vegan)
Recipe by Veganlicious
These tasty towers are great as a salad or they can also be used as an appetizer. They’re colorful and quick and easy to make.
Serves 4 people
For the Ingredients:
200 grams White Rice, Cooked
1 med. Zucchini, Cut in very thin slices
1/4 Cup Vegan Pesto
Tomato and Chives as Garnish
Step 1 Cook the rice and allow to slightly cool.
Step 2 Make the pesto (I chose basil but you can use any green pesto of choice.
Step 3 When the rice has cooled, make sure there is not extra water, if so drain the rice.
Step 4 Mix the pesto into the rice.
Step 5 Using a pastry ring, fill the lower 1/4 with the “green” rice.
Step 6 Place a layer of the zucchini over the rice and then another layer of rice, followed with a second layer of zucchini.
Step 7 I topped the tower with rice, and garnished with a tomato and a few chives.
Step 8 However, if you wish, it is also pretty topped with a layer of zucchini and garnish of choice.
