How to makeover your leftovers

How to makeover your leftovers

We’ll admit it, sometimes we are really unexcited by leftovers. The thought of eating the same meal that we ate yesterday isn’t always appealing.

In fact, 49% of Kiwis are guilty of throwing away their leftover food because they don’t feel like eating the same thing twice.

But when it comes to your leftovers, you don’t have to eat the same meal as you did yesterday. Think of them as the starting point for a whole new meal, with the bonus that a lot of the preparation has already been done.

With a couple of extra ingredients you can makeover yesterday’s dinner into today’s feast – and your kids will be none the wiser!

Rather than pushing those leftovers to the back of the fridge and forgetting about them, make it your mission to transform your leftovers into something new.

Here are the recipes:

Don’t want to cook?  You just need to assemble these rice paper rolls.
No time to cook? Switch on your sandwich press and enjoy these quesadillas in a couple of minutes.
Want to bulk it up? These omelette wraps will add some protein to your leftovers.
