we are a big family, 4 kids, husband and father in law.
daughter n°4 is vegetarian
daughter n°3 is allergic to so many things I can't remember
son n° 2 can eat whatever not putting on weight
son n°1 is the complete opposite, can't even see food without increasing
hubby is a big pasta lover (well, he loves any FOOD)
my father in law doesn't eat fish
sometimes I get hysterical in the kitchen! :)))
so, this is one of those dishes that suites everybody.
vegetarian, healthy, tasty and a stomach filler without being caloric.
wow! 1 dish for all the family!
and, the best thing you use leftovers!
no food waste, no bad conscious.
Rice with raw sage marinated vegetables
and tasty bread crumbs
leftover boiled rice (possible steamed)
onion or leek
red bell pepper
(blender old bread, parmigiano cheese and parsley)
extra virgin olive oil
fresh crushed green pepper (or black)
cut the vegetables in small pieces, especially the zucchinis
cut the sage in tiny slices and mix with some olive oil.
add the vegetables and mix well. let marinate for some hours
(perfect if you leave in the fridge during the night)
mix the marinated vegetables with the rice,
and add the cheese cubes
spread the bread crumbs over.
toss and mix with your hands.
if you like you can add some drops of olive oil.
before serving, season with a generous crush of green pepper.
in blending the bread crumbs you can add tasty cheese,
parsley or other herbs you like.
some garlic and/or chili.
put your bread crumbs in a glass jar and store in the freezer.
will conserve for at least 6 months.
to have a stronger taste you can toast them
in a pan with no grease
(pay attention that it doesn't get to
dark and bitter)
this evening I made fish for Helena (daughter n°3) and me
for my father in law I made a rich potato salad.
for the three of us, this magical sunset.
