Curry in a Hurry

split pea and curried rice

I knew lunch would be “NOW” at any moment, so I planned ahead by starting some curried rice in the rice cooker. I have taken to removing the rice from the rice cooker after about fifteen minutes and putting the grains into my smallish steamer set to steam to perfection. The rice somehow seems more “flaky” instead of somewhat gummy done this way.

There was still a bit of the split pea soup left, so while my Louisiana boy tucked into a plate of red beans and (white) rice, BBQ chicken, and broccoli, I got the split pea soup this time.

Hooray – two more leftovers vanquished.

Tonight leftover steak will become a great stir fry meal, featuring bok choy, red and green peppers, carrots, celery, almonds, sesame seeds, et al. May serve it on the curried rice from lunch, or, more likely, whip up some pasta.

Something to look forward to. ;->

    I have some split pea soup left also, but I’m getting a bit tired of it for a little while. That plate of food looks good!

      You can freeze it in small portions, and then trot it out when you get a hankerin’ for it. It does wear thin with me after the first iteration, but is welcomed after a hiatus. Freeze it in a container, and then slip the frozen disk of soup into a plastic bag so you don’t encumber your container. Easy to toss into a soup bowl and microwave back into deliciousness! ;->
