i have decided to stop being wasteful of left over meals and instead try and make something exciting to eat,with so many people going without food its good to avoid throwing food.i had made some cabbage and with what was left i made spring rolls for my girls,they were so delighted that they have asked when i can make the same thing again,i also discovered to make pizza toppings with left over minced meat was eatten well,do you have ideas of which meals can be recycled into a new recipe and not thrown away?

Good idea, don't thrownor waste foods because it is a blessing. Maybe you try yangchow fried rice best fo breakfast. Ingredients are left over rice, meat, cabbage, carrots, soy sauce and eggs and if you want to add more then add it. Saute the onion and garlic the add the rice all left overs and add a lik bit of sou sauce then salt. That's it :)

Hi, It is not good to waste the food. My wife make some delicious food items. So sometimes I am happy when some leftover food is kept in fridge. Because we get more delicious new item from it. We are vegetarian so we don' eat meat.

I always try to turn things into a new meal most people I know can't afford not to do this. I try to plan on making one thing from one meal to another. Like if I have left over pork I usually make veggie fried rice. If I have left over veggie fried rice I will add it to my chicken pot pie caserole as filler. My kids like eating cold mac'n cheese from the night before as breakfast. I try to waste very little and if it has to go to waste it's usually something I can feed the dog or put in the compost bin. I'd love to learn how to make spring rolls.

We don't like to waste food either. That's why we always try to cook just enough so we can finish up. Any left over would be put in the refrigerator to be consumed for the next meal. For left over steamed rice, most often we just make fried rice and it would always be finished right away. Any stale left over would be given to many wild birds that come over to our back yard every morning.

unless they go stale, i don't throw away food. i have seen enough hunger in the streets, people who rummage thru garbage bins looking for food and i would feel guilty if i'd throw away something that is still edible. if i have left over meat, i usually cook this with some vegetables. others i leave inside the refrigerator to be heated and eaten when i feel lazy or there's no time to cook.

Hi, It is true that recycling food is a good practice at conservation and thriftiness. Throwing away used food that can still be eaten is not only wasteful, it is immoral with some of those who cannot even have three square meals a day. One of the food item that can be reused on the next meal is rice, overnight leftovers I keep fresh in the refrigerator and heat it up in the morning as fried rice or as porridge or arroz caldo. It tastes better that way with eggs or dried fish.
