Quick ways with leftovers

How many times how you thought, "we don’t have anything to eat at home”? Think again! Keep it simple and experiment in the kitchen and you will soon find that you can make a lot out of a little. 

Here are my best “scrap dishes” tips, which are sure to be a success:

1.       Pasta. You can add most things to pasta, even if you keep it simple, it will still be delicious. Add garlic, chili and olive oil and you have a great tasting dish. Add yesterday’s chicken for a non-vegetarian dish.

2.       Risotto, paella and rice.” Cuban rice” is one of my favorite dishes when our fridge is almost empty. Cook rice, add garlic and crushed tomatoes. Top with a fried egg for a deluxe version. 

3.       Pizza. Did you know pizza was originally invented for using up yesterday’s leftovers? This is the perfect scrap lunch! Use whatever you find in the refrigerator or cupboards as a topping; you'd be surprised what works. Leftover steamed vegetables (such as broccoli or cold sliced, cooked potatoes) are great on pizza, topped with a little olive oil and oregano.

4.       Omelets and frittatas. In omelets you can also add almost anything. Do you have some extra potatoes at home? Make a Spanish omelet!

What’s your favorite “scrap” recipe? Leave a tip in the comments!
