I made a peanut butter sandwich with rice instead of bread because there is a food waste problem in this country

In a constant effort to piss off my loved ones and solve the food waste problem in this country, I have invented a new culinary creation.

“Culinary” may be an overstatement, but I did have the thought “This is probably how they’d eat peanut butter in Japan if that were a thing people did.”

So, I present to you a critically-acclaimed-by-me-I-am-the-critic new recipe that was born out of a desire to eat dinner in less than 5 minutes and an abundance of leftover, room temperature rice.


Ingredients:

Rice

Peanut butter

A desire to change the world through your actions

 

STEP 1.

Put some rice in a bowl. (Not pictured because I did not think this was something I’d want to tell people about until Step 2.)


STEP 2.

You’re gonna want to put the rice into a bowl make it into a little ball that will cradle the PB. If not though, who cares, this decision only affects you.


STEP 3.

Plop on a big ole glob of PB staying roughly in the center of the rice.

STEP 4.

Throw some more rice on top.

STEP 5.

Smush the rice down so you can’t see the peanut butter and it becomes a nice surprise inside. (Or a very not-nice surprise for those of us will allergies. Substitute any other filling I’m sure!)


STEP 6.

Put some whipped cream on for Instagram (optional).


STEP 7.

Eat. Become pleasantly surprised about how edible it is!


STEP 8.

Bask in self-righteousness for not throwing away that room temperature rice.


STEP 9.

Remember that rice is a water intensive crop that we should only eat sometimes if we have the luxury.


STEP 10.

Follow me on Instagram for awesome whipped cream pics. xoxoxo
