We understand that it’s difficult not to over cater at Christmas time. Our guide to how to reduce food waste this Christmas outlines ways to help reduce any waste after the last Christmas cracker has been pulled and the guests have all gone home.
Love your leftovers
Leftover pork, chicken or lamb are the kind of leftovers we love. Use leftover garlic lamb in a Middle-Eastern style wrap with any leftover hummus and salad. Add a squeeze of lemon for that extra zing.
After you cut out the brownie stars in the 5-star Brownie Bites, you may have a few tasty scraps leftover. If you or your kids haven’t already snaffled them up, here’s how you can turn them into a treat. Defrost a small tub of vanilla ice-cream until softened slightly and stir through chopped pieces of brownie. Refreeze. Serve the vanilla brownie ice-cream drizzled with melted dark chocolate, and fresh seasonal fruit.
Use your loaf
If you have leftover sourdough bread from the roast pork stuffing, tear it into pieces and toss it through melted butter and garlic then bake until golden. You can use these garlicky croutons in a salad.
If by some chance you have any potatoes leftover from your potato wreath, use them up to make a Spanish-style potato frittata. Just add some Western Star Spreadable to the pan to fry them off and pour over an egg, cream and cheese mixture and pop it in the oven until it’s golden. Serve with a green leaf salad.
Now that we’ve given you ideas on how to reduce food waste this Christmas, here are some recipes to help get the party started.
