I feel like I always have leftover rice lurking around in the fridge. Like EVERY single day! We eat a ton of rice on our homestead (basmati, jasmine, brown, arborio, wild, forbidden rice, sushi rice, etc) and eat it probably 3 or 4 times a week along side curries, crispy tofu, and stews.  This yellow Mediterranean rice recipe is perfect for using old leftover rice that is in the fridge.
