If you hate wasting food, especially if its all you’ve got, then here are some ideas as we progress over the duration of this lockdown.
On Friday, I found a semi stale baguette half, left over a week. You couldn’t eat it without ripping out a tooth.
If it is soft in the middle you can quickly blast the bread in a microwave for 10 seconds- It makes the bread go a bit soft.
Mash softened butter and 1 section of a clove of garlic in a bowl. Spread liberally over the top of the bread.
Grill until brown. Add a sprinkle of salt flakes, if its really buttery.
Left over roast vegetables
PLUS: You will need a couple of eggs and whatever cheese you have lying around.￼
Why not turn them into a delicious frittata.
Too many potatoes?￼
Vegetable left overs ( peppers, mushrooms, onions)
Slice them, cook ( either grill or fry ) and put them with some cheese and tomato sauce (passata, tomato paste, chopped tomatoes- whatever you have) on the base of a pizza.
(find the recipe for a yeast free pizza here). Pizza dough
Off cuts of potatoes, parsnips and root vegetables
Normally for the bin- if these are fresh enough, put the cut tops in water and watch them sprout. If they don’t bin them before they get too manky.
