Cuban Rice -Gluten Free & Vegan

I created this cuban rice when I was coming up with my Vegetarian dish, inspired by Ropa Vieja. I love me some cuban food. This rice perfectly compliments the recipe I came up with for my gluten free/vegan version of Ropa Vieja.

Originally I was juts going to have it be plain yellow rice, like the restaurant I go to. But it’s just not as esthetically pleasing to the eye. Plus the more flavors the better, I think. So I decided to add carrots and a bell pepper to the mix.

If you are looking for 1 pot rice that has a punch of flavor… look no further!
