Did you cook for 70 people and 25 showed up for the event? Here’s what you can do with your leftover food!

You have combed through recipe books and sailed through vegetable markets to prepare delicious food for party you’re throwing. However, not all your invitees are able to make it to the party and half the food is still left.

It is not a good idea to waste food. So, the next time there is excess food, pull this list up and do some good.

  • Distribute
    Split the food with everyone possible. Even with those you don’t like, it could turn out to be a way of fixing things.
  • Reuse
    Most leftover food can be reused into a stir-fry, casserole or in a soup or broth. Also, any vegetable preparation can used as Paratha stuffing for the next day.
  • Store
    Freeze the leftovers but make sure to consume it within 3 days.
  • Create
    Awaken your inner masterchef and create unique gourmet dishes. Add new spices to refresh the flavour.
  • Donate
    Lastly, give away edible leftovers to the ones who are in need or to those who would appreciate a homecooked meal. Knock on college dorm doors; they will be more than happy to eat good homemade food.

Top Tip

You can blend almost anything into a gravy to eat with rice the next day.
