I usually deliberately prepare extra when I cook food. That way I always intentionally have left overs.
The extra food goes into soups and casseroles. Another thing I do is save the water that veggies (potatoes, carrots etc) have been cooked in and I use that liquid as stock in the soups I make.
A favourite of mine is chicken pasta – of course gluten free.
Mix in a bowl
- cooked, chopped chicken breast
- cooked gluten free fusilli, about 35 gm
- cooked veggies
- 2 tbsp mayonaise
It just needs warming in the microwave and I have a tasty meal served with a salad. And don’t forget to top it with some fresh grated parmesan cheese.
Another time I added sliced mushrooms and zucchini and topped it with fresh parsley from the garden. You can add whatever veggies you have available.
Here is a delicious version of this recipe, Marie adds lots of cheese which would be so delicious,
You can also use my basic white sauce instead of mayonnaise.
Do you have a favourite way to use leftovers?
