Delicious Veggie Cake

Delicious Veggie Cake

This recipe is my daughter’s favorite. It’s easy, simple to make, absolutely delicious and it’s the best dish to make when it’s dinner time and the clock is ticking . Usually I do have cooked plain brown rice in my fridge most of the time, I make 2 cups at once, so I can just blend it in with different foods.

As I say it in all my postings I do not fry, simmer, boil, or cook with heated oil. All my recipes are health oriented, I use oil only on cold dishes, or when the heat from cooked dishes cooled off for a bit. You can always adjust the seasonings to your taste.

Cross out the ingredients as you go!


  • Carrots – 2 cup chopped
  • Zucchini – 2 cup chopped
  • Celery  – 1 cup chopped
  • Red Bell Pepper – 1 cup chopped
  • Mushrooms – 2 cup chopped
  • Sweet Peas – 1 cup – fresh or frozen
  • Garbanzo beans – 1 cup cooked
  • Tomato – 1 cup chopped
  • Leeks – ½ cup chopped
  • Herbs de Provence – 2 Tbsp
  • Salt – 1 Tbsp, or by taste
  • Pepper – by taste


  1. In a cast iron pan add the carrots, 1/2 cup water and cook them on high until the carrots are medium cooked.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook everything until all the ingredients are a bit tender and the water evaporated.
  3. Once it’s done set it aside, toss in a handful of chopped spinach to get a bit of steam and wait a couple of minute for the veggies to cool down.
  4. Add 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil and the juice from 1/2 lime.
  5. Warm up the rice in a steamer, or a regular pan.
  6. Use the 1 cup measurement to scoop up the rice and set it on a plate.
  7. With the same cup scoop out the veggies, make sure you press them in a little bit with the spoon to make a dense composition and add it on top of the rice.
