Have you been really efficient and bought just the right amount of food this festive period, and have nothing for leftovers? No, neither did we!
It’s all too easy to buy too much when it comes to provisions for the festive period. However, most have lots left over – and like with many things, we hate inefficiency and waste! But this goes much more than when we talk about our fires!
We had a whizz around the office to get a number of tips for dealing with leftovers this Christmas. Here are the results:
Turkey Stir-fry – If you’re not totally fed up (no pun intended!) with turkey, when an excellent way to deal with the leftover meat is to make a stir-fry. A stir-fry is a little more interesting than a pie, broth, or similar – which may have been done to death over the last week. You can also add cleansing elements in too, such as ginger and other ingredients. A stir-fry is also a great way to use up all the left over vegetables too.
Bone Broth – Okay, we said a stir-fry is a great alternative to broth. But actually if you do like broth (and/or don’t like stir-fry) then this could be a great meal to have. It may sound not too appetising to some – the mention of bone in a meal. However, it can be very tasty and uses up literally all the turkey left overs. You essentially boil the bones along with the onions and carrots. Feel free to add herbs of your choice along with some garlic too, should you wish.
Turkey Curry – If you love curry this is a good way to use up turkey. But also you can do vegetable curry too, or if you’re adventurous, turkey and vegetable!
Bubble & Squeak – Probably one of the most famous leftover dishes the world as ever known! Bubble and squeak is a great meal to cook up with leftovers! All you need to do is fry up potato and cabbage (and whatever other veg you want) and there you have a great meal.
Whatever you decide to cook up – enjoy and make the most of the festive season!
