Even the most prepared cooks throw out useful ingredients. Before opening that new bag of rice or heading to the supermarkets for new ingredients, think about how you might use last night’s leftovers. Here are a few tips to help you feed the family and surprise them every night of the week with exciting new meals.
You know you’ll always have left overs at Christmas so why not plan for them? Whatever leftovers you have in your fridge, from the Christmas Turkey to roasted chili butternut squash chunks; they can become a great street food style fusion for all the family to enjoy. Just add a few more items to your shopping list to make the leftovers into a delicious meal for when the guests have gone.
Collect your pasta splints, shards and leftovers in a bag and when there are enough, bring them to life as a tasty soup. The perfect recipe is a tomato minestrone soup, but you could be inventive and mix together other leftovers.
Cooking a roast can seem like an expensive undertaking but actually the ingredients you buy can go a long way. Most of the time you’ll find
you can stretch three meals out of the vegetables from your autumn Sunday dinner. Your leftover roast chicken can be transformed into a𠊌hicken curry for Monday night dinner whilst the vegetables you didn’t cook can be made into the base for lunch time salads.
