Hey pixels!! Yesterday was the first day of August. This means that the first seven months of 2017 are gone… How have you spent them? Did you had fun?
Now I’m writing from my favourite café, listening to good music and having a coffee with milk. Watching occasionally at their tv. And enjoying their air conditioned, we’ve had even higher temperatures over the past days (and today): 38ºC. Too much for me… I would like to have a house on a colder country to spent Summers there…
But I don’t have enough money for that, so I’m just making cold salads and dishes and eating lots of ice cream. One of my cold recipes is this rice salad full of veggies. Yummy!! (Note: now there is cycling on TV, so it’s harder to concentrate on writing this post).
Actually this salad is yummy cold or warm, so it’s up to you!! You can choose your favourite salad dressing. Or not, the salad flavour itself is good enough, you’ll enjoy it with just a few drops of raw olive oil on top. Enjoy it, my happy pixels!!
Ingredients (serve 3):
- 1 1/2 cups rice/brown rice
- 1 can sliced mushrooms
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1 jar red pepper slices
- optional: your favourite salad dressing
- salt, olive oil
While rice is boiling, cook pepper slices in olive oil for 5-6′. Add mushrooms and cook 5-6′. Add fresh spinach and cook just 2-3′.
Drain rice and mix it with the cooked veggies. Serve in bowls. Pour a bit of your favourite salad dressing, if using. If you want it colder, store in your fridge for at least 30′.
This salad can be stored in a closed container in your fridge for one day. Or you can bring it to your next beach picnic if you have a cooler.
How are temperatures where do you live, my happy pixels? How your Summer is going? Are you having fun? I hope so. Please, feel free to leave a comment.
