26. Feijoada and Orange Rice

I love oranges - they're so sharp and sweet, and the flavor works with so much, including chocolate. But I would have never thought to combine orange and rice. Lucky for me, I have Terry Hope Romero's Viva Vegan.

I made Romero's Savory Orange Rice, Brazilian Style, as an accompaniment for Portobello Feijoada.

These dishes worked perfectly together. The Feijoada is good, but the rice stole the show. Though it's savory, there is a sweetness to it thanks to the orange juice. I could probably eat this rice every day forever.

This was just one more pair of dishes that prove, scientifically, without doubt that Viva Vegan is worth its weight in gold.
