How Christmas Leftover Can Make Fun Meals

Christmas is officially over but the holiday spirit is still in the air. We are sure that if you open your fridge right now, it will be full of leftovers from a feast-y Christmas Day.

In the spirit of being jolly, we should all care a little bit about sustainability and not throw away those delicious leftovers.

Why do that, our editor screams, when you can turn those leftovers into yummy meals for the coming days. Here are some ideas our editor-cum-aspiring-chef gives us:

1.  A Turkey Thai Green Curry

Add a yummy meat element to the traditional Thai Green curry by adding finely diced/shredded turkey or chicken leftovers to a Thai Green curry. Cook red peppers, spring onions, peas in butter till they are soft inside. Then add curry paste and meat to the mix. Next add coconut milk and bring to boil, then cook on low for 5 minutes. Serve with rice.

2. Turkey Stir-fry

Nothing says quick and yummy the same way that stir-fry does. Shallow fry onions, garlic, vegetables in olive oil. Add finely sliced turkey slices. Squeeze lemon juice and soy sauce. Stir fry until everything is cooked to perfection.
This stir fry would go great with egg noodles.

3. Turkey Bruschetta

Toast some bread in the over. Rub a clove of raw garlic on the toast and a few drops of olive oil. After that you can put anything on top of it. Favourites include, roast turkey, tomatoes, mushrooms and fresh mint.

4. Leftovers Affogato

Affogato is a pudding that you can knock together in less than a minute. Assemble affogato in a wine glass to make it look extra special. Spoon any leftover pudding at the bottom of each glass. Top with a scoop of ice cream followed by a shot of expresso. Then crunch up amaretti biscuits and scatter on top of each glass of affogato. It'll be Christmas everyday for the rest of the week.

We hoped that you liked these leftover recipe ideas.
