If you cooked enough food to feed an army and have lots left over, don’t throw it all away. Try some of these Christmas leftover recipes. I dislike food waste. We are very fortunate in the UK to have more than enough food for our needs, throwing it away should be avoided at all costs. Not only is waste a drain on resources, it’s also a waste of money.
I have collected a range of recipes over the years to use leftovers for other meals. Try one and see what you think!
Turkey curry is a classic way to jazz up leftover meat. It’s also a good way to use up dark meat if you have fussy eaters in your house. Try this turkey curry recipe and see if it doesn’t taste great!
Turkey noodle soup
This Turkey noodle soup recipe is also a great way to use up leftover meat without going the way of a curry. The recipe is simple, healthy and very tasty. I have used this one myself and makes a great lunch.
Cranberry and pistachio nut roast
If you don’t eat meat, this cranberry and pistachio nut roast recipe from Jamie Oliver is amazing. It takes a while to cook but is simple, fresh, flavourful and savoury. It does things for nut roasts that will change your opinion of them forever.
Turkey sloppy Joes
Sloppy Joes are ‘in’ at the moment so you see them everywhere. I usually avoid recipes like that for just the reason of being ‘in’ yet these are so nice I just couldn’t help myself. Check out this Turkey sloppy Joe recipe from Jamie Oliver and tell me you don’t feel the same.
Christmas pudding trifle
Christmas pudding doesn’t go off as quickly as many foods cooked on the day but there comes a point where enough pud is enough. If you get to that point, don’t throw it away, try this Christmas pudding trifle recipe instead.
Versatile veg soup
Finally, this versatile veg soup recipe can use up all your leftover vegetables and turn them into a tasty soup ideal for warming you up on a cold day. You can alter it to use up leftover roast vegetables or use whatever leftovers you didn’t cook. It is the ultimate do it all recipe.
Remember, if you’re fed up with turkey or with cooking, The Stone Grill restaurant in Blackpool is open all over the holidays. Why not book a table and let someone wait on your for a change?
