What pie can you make with what’s in your fridge?
The beauty of a pie is that you can put anything in it – including leftovers!
A layer of pastry, or a mashed vegetable lid, can transform uninspiring leftovers into a whole new meal. Kiwi families throw away more than $100 million of leftovers every year when they could be making pies instead.
Even if you don’t think you have the makings of a pie in your fridge, you might be surprised by what you can pull together. Anything can be used as a pie filling, and if you have a pie maker or a muffin tin, then you only need a small amount of filling to make one. If you don’t have pastry on hand, you can use bread or mashed vegetables to form your pies.
