Coyoty makes trashy brown rice with turkey gravy and spicy salami spread.

Sometimes I eat out of a trash can. (Others may call it a multicooker.) If I have things sitting around in the refrigerator that I want to get rid of, but don’t want to just throw it away, I throw it in the trash can with some rice and cook it on the rice’s setting. (Unless it’s something I can have for breakfast, then I use oatmeal instead.) In this case, it turned out really good.

I had 1.5 cups of leftover Trader Joe’s turkey gravy and 3 oz. (half a package) of Trader Joe’s Nduja (a spicy salami spread), threw it in with a cup of Trader Joe’s brown rice, and pressure cooked it for 25 minutes. The result tasted very much like good Cajun dirty rice and beans, but without the beans.
