There's a lot to love about this delicious rice casserole starting with the rice itself. Arborio rice is so starchy and fun to work with, not to mention hearty and delicious. The rice is infused with tomato sauce giving it a wonderful tomatoey flavour that pairs perfectly with the saute of veggies. The saute includes fresh zucchini, button mushroom, bell pepper, and onion, along with some pepper flakes for heat, seasoning, and tomato sauce to tie it together with the rice.
The casserole is layered with rice and sauteed veggies, topped with shredded cheese, and baked until firm and delicious. It cuts like a lasagne and holds together perfectly as well. Finish it off with a sprinkling of your favourite fresh herb and ENJOY!

A few weeks back, I told you guys that I was going to start putting out new animal news videos once a week and I'm on track to get that done! My plans are to reduce the length of the videos and cut back to two topics a week to keep things consistent and accessible. I'm super excited to be putting out videos more frequently and I hope that you guys will be as excited as I am.
Here's the topics for my next video!
DIRTY MEAT - HYGIENE FAILINGS IN U.S. PIG AND CHICKEN PLANTS
An investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and the Guardian has exposed the lack of hygiene practices within several U.S. meat processing plants. Filthy conditions, meat covered in feces and abscesses, and carcasses piling up due to faulty equipment were some of the atrocities exposed.
The United Kingdom is worried a trade deal with the U.S. will bring over tainted meat but the fact is, the U.K. has also been busted repeatedly for poor hygiene within their animal processing plants.
The fact is, animal processing plants are disgusting regardless of where they are. There's nothing hygienic about slaughtering millions of animals a year in one plant. I'm breaking down the reality of animal processing plants and the facts behind their hygiene standards.
ANIMAL TESTING - OPINION PIECE
Animal testing has been happening for several years and for a variety of products / reasons. Everything from beauty products and household cleaning products, to experimental treatments for illnesses and disease. Animals are subjected to unnatural conditions, given disease which ultimately leads to a life of suffering, and live their lives in labs. There is absolutely no justification for this and I'm going to discuss the problems with animal testing. I've also got a few solutions and ideas for new products that don't involve animals.

I've got some news for you guys! I've been scouring the net for the best animal news stories to cover for you guys and I realized that there were so many to discuss, one video wasn't going to cut it. I absolutely love filming the videos and despite how much work they can be, I really want to try and put more more of them out. That's why I've decided to try and challenge myself for the sake of my blog!
Starting the first week of March, I will be releasing a new video every week. That means, every week I'll be breaking down and commenting on some of the top animal news stories across the globe. It's so important to me to stay on top of animal rights and stay at the forefront of what's happening to animals. As important as vegetarian food and blogging are to me, animal rights will always be my passion.
