CREATE FRESH, INSPIRED NEW MEALS OUT OF LAST NIGHT'S LEFTOVERS

Mar 21, 2014

Create Fresh, Inspired New Meals Out of Last Night's Leftovers

Unless you are the most precise cook on the planet (or your family is unusually ravenous), it's pretty much a given that there will be leftovers after dinner. It can be enough for a straight-up repeat meal--or, you can be left scratching your head at how to re-use some delicious but confounding stragglers: a lone pork chop, for example, or a few stalks of asparagus

We'd never suggest that you toss them out. You can always get scrappy with your scraps and spin them in a whole new direction. Usually the key is to transform the texture--shred leftover brussels sprouts, pulse cubes of meat in a food processor--to create a new meal that feels fresh and different.
