Sometimes you just know what to do with leftovers. It is like an idea just drifted into the kitchen and snagged your imagination. That is just what happened last evening. I have been so busy that stopping in a grocery store could not even be squeezed into the day. So when the hunger beast arrived, I went to the cupboard but the cupboard was bare as was the fridge and the pantry. The only thing I could find was leftover rice. So I mixed up a dressing of rice wine vinegar, olive oil, mustard, and maple syrup.Threw in some chopped up dried cranberries, almonds and pumpkin seeds I had on hand, Mixed it all together and whalla, I had a meal. Thankfully I still had lettuce in the garden that I kept protected from the frost. Needless to say, I went to bed full and happy.
I admit I measured nothing but here is an idea of what you could do for one cup cooked rice. Give it a taste but it should be good to go.
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar,
2TBS olive oil,
1/2 tsp dijon mustard,
2TBS maple syrup
