Like a child on Halloween, I had fun last Friday night picking through the wonderful bounty that had arrived at my door.
However, before dreaming up all the possible permutations of those ingredients, I had to first address the list of items that were already sitting in my fridge. If I had one superpower, it would be the ability to create a favourable meal out of leftovers. When I was a student, it wasn’t unusual for friends to ask me “I have X, Y and Z in my fridge…what can I do with that?”
With the advent of the Google search, it’s so easy to think of ways to utilize leftovers. Are you looking for something new? Want a twist on a classic comfort food? Short of time? The internet has your answer!
So last Friday, I took out the following unused items below:
And turned it into this:
A tasty quinoa salad with some balsamic & olive oil dressing! I think the only thing I would do differently, would be to sweat the onions on the stove first; they were a bit fierce, even for my liking!
I also threw together a gorgeous soup using these babies:
It was one of the easiest, silkiest, soups I’ve made in awhile. Stay tuned for that recipe!
