Sometimes I have a precise menu plan for the week and other times I make it up as I go along. Today I had not even taken anything out of the freezer so spent a little time while I was on the train this evening planning what to eat for dinner. I decided on grilled sausages with vegetable patties and fried mushrooms. Of course we have home-made tomato sauce with the sausages. This was all prompted by knowing that there was some leftover sweet potato mash and some leftover cooked rice in the refrigerator.
I picked some bok choy from the garden.
I chopped and lightly stir-fried the bok choy before adding it to the mash/rice mixture.
I added some herb salt, black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of cumin to the mixture along with a small egg and some chickpea flour. The mixture was very soft so it was a matter of placing dollops of it into the pan and frying both sides. Finally, I fried some mushrooms and dinner was ready.
A filling dinner and the verdict from The Duke was, “Yum”. You can’t ask for much more than that.
How do you deal with leftovers?
