Using your leftovers

As much as we can try to be masters of portion control, there are always going to be times when we misjudge the pasta or have eyes bigger than our bellies. Then there’s the vegetable peelings, such a waste. Make every morsel count by using up your leftovers.

What can you do?

  1. Potato peelings make great crisps! Just sprinkle with salt and pepper and pop into the oven till crispy.

  2. Pop wrinkled and wilted veg into a bowl of cold water to give them a new lease of life.

  3. Blitz stale bread and leftover crusts with a food processor and use the breadcrumbs for breaded coatings, stuffings and toppings.
