Not sure what to do with leftover rice? Preferably white rice…
One trick I learned is to mix the rice with coconut milk, cinnamon, dates/raisins and/or bananas to make a delicious rice pudding dessert. Any other ideas?

    The rice pudding sounds nice. But you don't need to eat in straight away if you don't feel like rice - have you got a freezer? To be honest, I usually freeze leftover rice, and then defrost it when I need a quick meal like rice, beans and tomato sauce, or am craving something like curry. The only things to remember are to let the rice completely cool before freezing it, and to add a tablespoon of water per cup when defrosting, otherwise the texture can go a bit strange.

    You could make a Asian fried rice by adding spring onions, veggies (fresh or frozen), tamari or soy sauce and sriracha

    You can make easy rice cakes, making a gram flour or wheat flour batter, mixing spices (tumeric, parsley, chilli pepper, salt, and then frying it.

    Make vegan fried rice....lots of recipes on Pinterest. There's also something called a rice ball that can be combined with different ingredients then baked or deep fried.

    It's also very simple to add it to a can of lentil soup, or even add it to a homemade bean soup to add texture...this also solves the problem of older rice being a bit dry, the soup will moisten it back up.

    You can also moisten rice that's a day or two old by adding salsa or some sort of Mexican or Tex-Mex red or green sauce and having it on a bean burrito.

    Rice milk? When I have leftover rice i usually just chuck whatever veggies i have with some kind of seasoning or sauce that's in the fridge.
