I hate to waste anything.
I always take home restaurant leftovers. I reuse plastic baggies as many times as possible.
Hell, I'll even save strawberry leaves and throw them in my green smoothies.
And I absolutely try to use up all "miscellaneous items" in the fridge before any of them go bad and must get thrown away.
This mediterranean recipe was inspired by a recent refrigerator clean-up. A couple olives, a bit of cooked rice, a half-empty jar of tahini...
These were just some of the odds and ends found lurking in my fridge- behind almond milk, kale, and other more regularly used items.
These ingredients melded beautifully. Lucky for me because I was hungry and pretty desperate.
This recipe made perfect use of what I had to work with.
It is really satisfying as a snack or part of a meal!
