Extra Rice? What do you do with it?

If you’re like me, no matter how many times I try and judge it, I always make too much rice with our meal. So annoying! So here is an easy recipe for what to do with leftover rice:

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or red-wine vinegar
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon paprika, preferably smoked
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 cups cooked brown rice (can use white rice as well)
1 15-ounce can lentils, rinsed, or 1 1/3 cups cooked lentils
1 carrot, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional- don’t have to use if you don’t have!)

 

Directions:
1. Whisk oil, vinegar, shallot, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add rice, lentils, carrot and parsley; stir to combine
2. And that’s it!

 

To Make Ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

 

Enjoy!
