When my husband tastes something that he’s found in the refrigerator and doesn’t even know that it’s a new recipe creation. Just something he’s stumbled upon while foraging for food, and he hollers at me ‘Wow, this is really good…’ Then you know what? It makes the blog list! Yes, this is precisely how this recipe that I’ve names “north african rice dates & olives” has landed right here in your laps. Now, I was kind of surprised because he’s not a huge fan of olives, but in this case, the olives simply add the saltiness to harmonize the sweetness of the succulent dates and other dried fruit.
Another nifty feature of this dish is that it’s versatile and can be served as a side or add some meat or grilled seafood, and it becomes the entree. Got leftovers? How ’bout stuffing pita pockets, adding some sliced grilled chicken or shrimp, some seasoned sour cream, chopped cilantro, and you have another meal. So, my luvs, here’s to jasmine being more than just a lovely Southern scent… ~peace & nameste~ xoxo ally
