You know that sinking feeling you get when you open up your fridge and there's nothing but condiments and slowly wilting greens in the vegetable crisper? Of course you do. We all do. It's OK.

That's why recipes like this exist.

This dish from Michael Solomonov's instant classic Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking cookbook. It's a blank canvas for the odds and ends and leftovers lying around your fridge, but a little Urfa pepper spice will go a long way in bringing them all to life.

"At home rice pilaf is the perfect thing to make when you have absolutely nothing to eat in your kitchen," Solomonov says.
