We love rice around here. Not only is it one of the cheapest pantry staples you can purchase but it’s also super versatile and delicious. In fact, two of my children love it so much they will happily eat it plain!
It’s not uncommon though for me to cook up a big pot of rice in my Instant Pot to eat with Garlic Chicken, Tikka Masala or Easy Mexican Rice Bowls but then have some rice leftover that I’m not sure what to do with.
Obviously, I can freeze it. But then there is still the problem of how to use it up! I’m guessing you can relate.
That’s where these delicious leftover rice recipes come in!
There are easy lunch options, main course meals, appetizers, and rice side dishes that are anything but ordinary. No matter what amount of rice you want to use, there’s definitely a recipe listed here for it.
