It was one of those days, we were both super tired for some reason. Maybe it was the weather, who knows… basically not a good day for a complicated meal.
I looked in the fridge and all I had was a little bit of leftover beans from two days ago.
Faster Meals Tip 5: Refresh leftovers!
The beans were too little to serve as a stew for two people, but they were just enough to add colour to some rice. So I cooked half a cup of rice to mix with the beans (like a risotto). While that was cooking I started making some kachumbari.
I was preparing the kachumbari as usual (onions, chopped, soaked in warm water with salt, chopped tomatoes, washed and chopped dhania) when I suddenly had a craving for fruit. I remembered I still had some pineapple in the fridge, then I had an idea — why not mix it in the kachumbari?
So I did! Chopped up a bit of the pineapple and added to the kachumbari.
The kachumbari was very yummy! The rice and beans was a bit dry so it was nice to have an occasional splash of the sweet pineapple. The rating below is for the kachumbari.
