Use leftover rice

close-up view of boiled riceThere is a lot of controversy around re-using leftover rice. The way I look at it is that people are not as careful handling rice as they are handling other sensitive¬†food because they think: “But, it’s just rice!”.

Just make sure that any unused rice will be quickly cooled down and stored in the fridge for a couple of days. You can then reheat once for a hot meal or use cold in a salad.

Alternatively, leave it out for the birds. They won’t thank you but they will love it. :-)
