I often use rice that has been in the fridge a few days - ate some yesterday that had been there since Saturday and I am still here.
Recipe sounds delicious as a vegetarian could you post it please when you get the time.
Hi Irene, found this recipe which might help. Obviously you would need to substitute the chicken with Quorn, but I think it would work pretty much the same
Diet coke chicken
Serves 2, syn free
4 chicken breasts diced
1 can of diet coke/coke zero
6 tbsp of passata
1 tsp of worcestershire sauce
1 diced onion
1. Fry the chicken and onion in fry light until the chicken is cooked
2. Add the coke, passata and worcestershire sauce
3. cook for 10-15 minutes until the sauce has turned thick and sticky, the sauce will greatly reduce
4. Serve with wedges/rice and salad
Oooh no I wouldnt have eaten it, rice can be a bit funny! However, if you are still here to tell the tale must be OK. There is a thread on here somewhere about it. I am having chicken diet coke tonight, I would love it with rice, but am good and have it with a load of beansprouts instead, hubby has his with rice. Its lovely isnt it
Okay odd info source here lol... my baby weaning book says its fine to store rice in the fridge or freezer untill it goes bad, its only room tempreture which the evil rice bacteria forms which can not be destroyed
reheating rice is fine too as long as it has been done straight from fridge or freezer
Q. I've heard that reheating rice can cause food poisoning. Is this true?
A. It's true that you could get food poisoning from eating reheated rice. But it's not actually the reheating that's the problem – it's the way the rice has been stored before reheating.
Uncooked rice can contain spores of bacteria that can cause food poisoning. When the rice is cooked, the spores can survive. Then, if the rice is left standing at room temperature, the spores will multiply and may produce poisons that cause vomiting or diarrhoea. Reheating the rice won't get rid of these poisons.
So, the longer cooked rice is left at room temperature, the more likely it is that poisons produced could stop the rice being safe to eat.
It's best to serve rice when it has just been cooked. If that isn't possible, cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour) and keep it in the fridge for no more than one day until reheating
