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.
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.
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.
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.
Green Soup is a tasty way to use up a head of broccoli and boost your iron levels. I love soups you can load up with your favourite toppings and this one is perfect.
Irish Boxty is a tremendous breakfast dish to serve with eggs. It is filling and tasty and is a great way to use up any leftover mash you might have.
There may be ingredients you’re throwing out that could be used to make delicious dishes. Broccoli stems fried with garlic are a great way to save the stems going to waste.
