It took several weeks, but it seems that I finally got tired of my 57 million Thanksgiving leftover variations. I had the soup, the rice, the pie, the other soup, salads – believe me, if it could be made from Turkey Day leftovers, I made it. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not like I haven’t eaten anything else. But this is always an extremely lean time of year for me financially, so I try to make the most of what a huge meal’s leftovers can offer.
Alas, it was finally time to have something different. I’d gotten so used to leftovers that it actually came as quite a shock that I would have to *gasp* think about what to make for dinner. A quick perusal of my kitchen’s contents made that task a lot easier, for I had everything I needed to make a recipe I’d forgotten about until SHAPE Magazine tweeted about it a couple months ago.
This is a great little dish that actually makes a lot more food than the number of servings suggests. There’s usually a lot of filling leftover, so you can enjoy that as a nice side or as a quick lunch the following day. Perfect for Meatless Mondays, this is a very satisfying meal that can be enjoyed year round.
