How to turn leftovers into pies

No matter how little is left, there’s always enough for a pie!

Have you ever looked at the leftovers in your fridge with dread, uninspired by eating the same meal for a second or third time? You’re not alone.

Kiwi families are wasting over $100 million of leftovers each year. A whopping 9,489 tonnes of cooked meals end up in the bin.

A solution to reducing food waste and helping families save money lies in the Kiwi classic – pies!

No matter how little you have left – whether it is leftover mince or roasted vegetables – there is always enough for a pie. The beauty of using leftovers means most of the preparation has been done and all you need to do is assemble the pie.

Pies can take many forms: made in a pie maker, free-form with filo, topped with a mashed vegetable lid, or even made with bread. You can use leftovers as they are, or mixed with sauces or vegetables to become whole new meals.
