Cajun French: le riz (lu ree) – rice
A little bit of this and a little bit of that. What to do with that little bit of leftovers; combine them and make a great side dish. Rice is a staple in Cajun kitchens and at Cajun meals yet sometimes there is just a little rice left, not enough for one serving much less for a family. When that happens we just see what other vegetables we have and start combining and soon we have Veggie Rice. This is a quick, easy, and time saving dish.
