Cupboard Challenge! Brown Rice, Ginger, Parsley and Scallions

Pin it button big

There are certain items in the fridge that always seem to get left for last. For me it's the ginger, scallions, and herbs. They are absolutely necessary kitchen staples, but when I only use a little of one or the other, I find myself scrambling to use the rest up before it goes bad.

Hence, a Cupboard Challenge. Ginger, scallions, and - surprise! - flat Italian parsley. I thought it was cilantro (see how quickly I forget what's in my fridge?) but realized that it's the rather less appropriate parsley. Throw in some brown rice and you have a challenge.

What would you do with these four things? I have some ideas - watch for a recipe next week - but we're curious about what you'd do.
