What I make and eat #9

This is leftovers!

Firstly I toasted some cumin seeds in a hot pan, then added a litttle oil and sauteed some minced garlic, cilantro stalks, and chile flakes for a minute over medium high heat. I added a chopped onion, then reduced the heat to medium and allowed the onion to caramelise lightly prior to adding in some leftover grains - in this instance rice and quinoa - to heat through and have the flavors meld. Really quick, yummy, and filling.

Yum! I love that you flavoured left over rice & quinoa with cumin & coriander, sounds perfect to me.

And I just saw the link to Vegan Slow Cooking - I love the cover, it looks great!
