I have a confession to make, when it comes to cooking rice, I overshoot it every time by about 4-6 cups. I’m not sure what my deal is, I guess I just really have a phobia of running out of cooked rice, haha!
But today that leftover cooked rice, along with some leftover Thai Peanut Sauce, came in very handy to make this epic new recipe!
I recently shared a recipe for Thai Peanut Chicken Stir Fry. The stir fry recipe only needed about one cup of Thai Peanut Sauce, but my super delicious Thai Peanut Sauce recipe that I’ve been making for years, makes three cups of sauce. Sure, I could have just cut down the recipe, but why make less of such a good thing when you can just keep creating new dishes with the same scrumptious sauce?!
Enter this Thai Peanut Pineapple Veggie Rice Bowl!
It’s filled with every color of the rainbow, making it both beautiful and delicious!
If you have leftover rice and Thai peanut sauce, the recipe only takes 10 minutes to toss together, but even if you need to cook the rice and make the sauce, the recipe still only takes 30 minutes to make!
Super simple, totally scrumptious, vegetarian and gluten free, this dish has it all!
