After I was married, the first house my husband and I bought was only a couple of miles away from my mother. Quite often I would stop by for a coffee and a chat. And if I was hungry, I would look into the frig, as there was always a treasure trove of Tupperware containers filled with precious leftovers. It didn’t matter what was inside, because I knew anything I chose would be delicious. It could be her macaroni and cauliflower soup, red beans and rice, the last slice of lasagna, or just a little of this and some of that. I think this is probably how the so-called Mediterranean bowls, that have become quite popular, came into existence. These shallow bowls, filled with good, clean, healthy foods, usually consist of a grain, lots of vegetables and sometimes a protein. It is a delicious way to use up various leftovers. Thank you, mom!
Whatever you find in your refrigerator!
