Baked Brisket Penne
I always keep some beef brisket aside after slow roasting a joint for Sunday lunch so that I can make this deeply delicious baked pasta dish.
Chicken Stew and Dumplings
Add some chicken stock and leftover roast chicken to these easy-to-make dumplings and you’ve got a fantastic family meal.
Turning leftover chicken bones into stock is a great way to make your money go further and reduce food waste. The stock is a perfect base for soup, casseroles, gravies and sauces.
Making stock from beef bones is incredibly easy and the broth is full of nutrition. It’s a great way to boost your immune system and make sure nothing goes to waste in your kitchen.
Almond Chicken Curry
This simple, kid-friendly chicken curry is a great way to use up leftover roast chicken. It’s mild but flavourful and incredibly easy to make.
Tinned Salmon Fishcakes
One of my depression-fighting favourites is salmon and tinned salmon still has the nutrients that protect and improve brain function. Tinned Salmon Fishcakes are a great way to use up leftover mash.
Parsley and Parmesan Potato Cakes
Leftover mashed potato is an opportunity to make delicious potato cakes. For this combo I’m using Parsley and Parmesan. Flat leaf parsley gives a bright note to this filling side dish.
Simple Burgers for Kids
I make these simple burgers for the kids once a week and have the whole process down to a fine art. No waste and no remembering to buy buns. They’re a firm favourite with the kids.
Mashed Potato with Parmesan
I always make a double batch of mashed potato because it can be used to make another family meal later in the week. Parmesan is the perfect addition to make this classic side dish even more delicious.
