Watch our video to find out how to freeze and defrost rice safely with Sallie, a volunteer from the Love Food Hate Waste team.
In partnership with Clear Pharmacy, we met the lovely local people of Mount Merrion to run a food-saving session focusing on health and wellbeing. The event was a big hit with everyone, helping residents to make the most of every mouthful.
This delicious vegetarian dish is a great one to have on standby in the freezer and is a good vegetarian option for the main Christmas meal. Serve with garlic bread and crispy green salad.
Grain-based salads are filling and nutritious, and work really well with fresh fruit, which adds colour, texture and taste.
Cook’s tip: Other grains can be used – try couscous or brown rice. Choose apples with a tart, fresh flavour and pretty green or red skins.
