World Food Day – 16th October 2018

This post is a little late but rather late than never.

Since we are talking about world hunger, let’s also talk about food wastage.

A very significant day for me. Creating the awareness that while some of us have three meals per day, there are people out there with none.

Tastic Rice is bringing people together to give back and impact communities they way it matters the most. Sharing my tips on how we can fight hunger by doing the following easy ways:

Grow Veggies

I’ve touched on this a lot because as much as we have access to buy veggies. Growing veggies is cheaper and more rewarding. You can do this as a team with friends or neighbors, which means less space needed and shared harvest.

Zero food waste

Cook enough for your family. On days that you end making too much, freeze and re-use another day as a different meal. Leftover rice is great to make paella and or Chinese fried rice.

A doggy bag not only for dogs

Restaurants are a hub for food wastage by customers not eating all their foods.

I sometimes sit at Restaurants and look at how many plates go back with leftover food- a case of having eyes that are bigger than our stomachs.

What we can do is take a doggy bag for car-guards or street beggars ( South Africa, you know what I mean ) I am obviously talking about decent leftovers. I wouldn’t want you to insult anyone hungry or not. The restaurants can turn into organic fertilizer.

Teach a man to fish

Giving food parcels is lovely but imagine what will happen if those people received food parcel with seeds to plant veggies and are shown ways how to.

I appreciate how is Tastic Rice for giving back to the community and bringing people together.

Stand together and fight hunger not just on World Food Day but every day!

    My favorite left over rice dish is adding some fresh greens like spring onion, green pepper and grated cucumber, salt and pepper and some creamy mayo! It is the best!!

    My left over rice dish is an easy, quick and family friendly meal, Leftover Chicken and Egg Fried Rice.
    Put 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large frying pan for a minute.
    Add the cooked rice, shredded chicken, frozen peas, frozen sweetcorn, red pepper and spring onions. Stir fry 3-4 minutes, until everything is warmed through and the frozen veg is no longer frozen. Add the garlic and stir fry for 1 more minute.
    Meanwhile crack the eggs into a large mug or small jug and whisk together lightly with a fork. Make a well in the middle of the rice mixture and pour in the eggs – cook for 30 seconds, then mix the rice mixture and eggs together.
    Continue frying for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, until you start to get some nice crispy brown bits. Pour in the soy sauce and sesame oil and fry for 1 more minute. Serve scattered with a few extra spring onions.

    Season leftover white rice and use it to make vegetarian stuffed tomatoes.
    1. Slice off the tops of your tomatoes
    2. Fill with a seasoned rice mixture
    3. Drizzle with olive oil and bake.
    You could use peppers instead of tomatoes to stuff, as well 😋
