Creative ways to turn leftovers into family favourites
No need to throw out those leftovers! Here’s how to turn any ingredient into a masterpiece.
When it comes to food waste, the 2019 National Food Waste Baseline report shows the average Australian household is sending roughly 4.9kg of food waste to landfill each week, adding up to a whopping $2,000-2,5000 per year.
The good news is there are so many ways to get creative with leftovers and other loose bits and bobs in the fridge, using up everything you have and turning it into something even the fussiest of eaters will love.
“There are great ways to regenerate leftovers, just remember that if you have leftover cooked foods, it should be cooled down and refrigerated as soon as possible if you’re going to use it again,” says RACV Club Executive Chef, Jason Camillo.
