Often, when I use rice for dinner, I cook twice as much rice as I will need for that meal. Then, I freeze the leftovers in serving size portions to use for lunches. Then, I found this recipe and decided to try it for breakfast. I LOVED it!!! In fact, I now eat it several times a week.
I found this at CleanandDelicious.com by Dani Spies. She has some really great recipes, and they are always fast and simple (gotta love that!)
