Spanish Rice

Hey lovelies 

I always have tons of rice left over the next day when I do a curry for dinner.

I know a lot of you are unsure about reheating rice but according to safe food Ireland its fine to reheat the next day as long as its been cooled quickly and refrigerated.

This dish was basically made with the contents of my cupboard and fridge.

Tomorrow is food shop day, So I was trying to use up what I had in without having to head out

Other veggies that would work well with be frozen peas and red pepper.

This is such a simple chuck in all in a pot recipe and most importantly budget friendly too
