I guess you should not cook anything on your birthday, right? Wrong. I did cook something, for our dinner today, even there is still my birthday and it was somehow oriental inspired. And guess what. It came up great, as I may add with modesty, of course.
Well we had a barbeque Saturday when we actually had my birthday “party” and, as always happen we had some leftovers. I’m talking about the skewers I made with squash, chicken, peppers, onion, and chorizo. I put them in the fridge and started wondering what to do with them. First I thought I could make some middle eastern pita sandwiches with a yogurt and mint sauce, but I have chosen to combine it with rice :). It came out I had a great idea, cause the combination was great.
I used, of course, the BBQ leftovers, but I added a big chopped tomato, some chilli, 1/2 cup of wild rice, a spoon of olive oil, one big onion and turmeric.
How to do it:
1. Put the rice to boil and add a 1/2 tea spoon of turmeric into the water. Cover the pot and let it boil.
2. When the rice is boiled, in a frying pan add the olive oil, the onion and let it soften for a minute. Add the tomato, the chilli and the BBQ leftovers. Let them know each other for 2 minutes, add the rice, some salt and you’re ready
