When your trying to use things up the combinations can sometimes be a bit of a mess but are still delicious when you get past the look of it. So here are the ugly but honourable mentions from our cupboard clear out so far –
When I made the spicy sweet potato salad there was the leftover poaching juice. I soaked a couple of soy steaks in it, cooked them with some mixed grains, onion, peppers and sweet corn and this was the outcome.
Next up some summer rolls which I overstuffed and they fell apart. I was more than happy to eat them with a spoon though as they still tasted good! These were filled with kimchi tofu, sweetcorn, peppers and topped with moong dal sprouts.
Risotto number 2 – Tomato, courgette, onion, spinach and chilli. Again it looks kinda mushy but it really does taste good! I have risotto down on my list of videos to make so keep an eye out for that if your interested.
I’m still working through the cupboards but things are getting a lot clearer and when we’re back from our holiday next week I’ll crack open the next cupboard to organise.
