Vegan Lebanese rice with vermicelli and pine nuts. A great side dish next to many Mediterranean favorites.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes
Servings: 6 Servings


2 cups long grain or medium grain rice
1 cup broken vermicelli pasta
2 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts, optional to finish


• Rinse the rice well (a few times) then place it in a medium bowl and cover with water. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Test to see if you can easily break a grain of rice by simply placing it between your thumb and index finger. Drain well.

• In a medium non-stick cooking pot, heat the olive oil on medium-high. Add the vermicelli and continuously stir to toast it evenly. Vermicelli should turn a nice golden brown, but watch carefully not to over-brown or burn it (If it burns, you must throw the vermicelli away and start over).

• Add the rice and continue to stir so that the rice will be well-coated with the olive oil. Season with salt.
