You can do this with the leftovers from an evening of gourmet

Must Try

Gourmet has few rules; everyone does it their own way. But there is one thing that applies to almost everyone: you always buy too much. The moment the button on your pants is already open, there is still at least half a plate of (vegan) meat on the table. And well, what do you do with that leftover gourmet?

Well, there are quite a lot of options for that.

You can do this with leftover gourmet

Leftovers gourmet in nasi goreng

Leftover meat, vegetables and peanut sauce? You can easily process it in a pan nasi goreng! Make sure you cook rice in advance and let it cool down.

Fry some fresh ginger, garlic and a red pepper in oil. Add the meat from the leftover gourmet together with a dash of ketjap manis and fry until the meat is almost cooked. Add vegetables – preferably leek, bell pepper, carrot and bean sprouts – and fry them briefly. Add 2 eggs and stir through the vegetables and meat until cooked through. Finally, fry the rice and some extra soy sauce for a few minutes. Serve with fresh coriander if desired.

Or substitute some ingredients in this recipe:

Leftover meat in a stew

You can also use different types of meat in a stew: nice and warm and wintery.

Fry a chopped onion and garlic in some oil and add the meat and a large can of tomato paste. Cook for a few minutes, then add a good splash of red wine, some beef stock, 3 bay leaves , fresh rosemary needles, and winter vegetables (such as parsnips, carrots, and mushrooms). Let it simmer until the vegetables are tender and serve with mashed potatoes. Don’t forget to fish out the bay leaves!

Leftover meat in a stir-fry dish

Prefer something a little faster? Make a quick stir-fry with the vegetables and meat you have left!

Heat some oil in a wok and fry the leftovers gourmet with a dash of soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper. Stir fry until the meat is cooked, then add ready-made noodles . Bake for a few more minutes and serve with a sesame seed and spring onion topping.

Leftover baguette in the panzanella

Stale baguette is no longer tasty to eat on its own, but you can use stale bread in several dishes. Like panzanella!

Cut the baguette into cubes and fry it in a frying pan until golden brown with a little olive oil. Then toast some pine nuts in the same pan. Meanwhile, roast some cherry tomatoes on a baking tray at 200 degrees for about 15 minutes. Mix the bread with the tomatoes, pieces of mozzarella and fresh basil and season with salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Garnish with the pine nuts.

Leftover vegetables in an omelette

You can use most vegetables in a nice thick, filling farmer’s omelette. Heat some oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add a chopped onion and fry for a few minutes. Then add your leftover vegetables from the gourmet cooking and fry them until they are mostly cooked. Meanwhile, beat 2 eggs in a bowl.

Add the eggs to the pan and turn the heat to low. Wait patiently for the omelet to be cooked. You don’t have to rotate it, that will probably only ruin it! Serve on a thick whole- wheat sandwich.

Leftover meat on an Eastern sandwich

But the prize for the easiest lunch still goes to the good old sandwich. And yes, you can put leftovers gourmet on that too.

Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry your leftovers of meat with a dash of soy sauce, some pepper and ground ginger. Meanwhile, toast the inside of a cut open soft ball in a pan. Spoon the cooked meat on the bottom of the bun and finish with teriyaki sauce, bean sprouts, atjar tjampoer and fried onions. Yum!
