The last few days before month end can be torture pocket-wise. We’re all hustling as millennials to make them pennies stretch. Here’s a yummy recipe that includes your last last fridge leftovers. We swear that this meal is actually edible. Serious.
Serves 4 to 6
250ml basmati rice
1 onion, finely chopped
5ml chopped garlic
250g button mushrooms, halved
1 red and 1 yellow pepper, diced
250ml cooked, chopped leftover chicken
250ml frozen peas
30ml soy sauce
30ml sweet chilli sauce
60ml chopped coriander
Boil the rice in salted water for 10 to 12 minutes, until tender. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok or non-stick frying pan. Add the onion and garlic and fry until soft.
Add the mushrooms and peppers and fry for a few minutes.
Add the cooked rice and the rest of the ingredients and cook until warmed through.
*This dish is ideal for making with leftover cold rice.
