Do you often have half a broccoli, fennel and spring onion left over? Or are there other vegetables in the crisper drawer? You can perfectly make a quick one-pan pasta with it, perfect for Mondays!

Of all foods, bread is the most often thrown away, while you can still make so many delicious things with it. Just think of croutons, French toast or bread soldiers. A delicious tip is to use leftover bread in a panzanella salad. Delizioso !

The bowls in all shapes and sizes have been flying around your ears in recent years and that’s a good thing. Because besides just being containers full of happiness, they are also a perfect place to hide leftovers. Build a brilliant bowl with leftover rice, half a bell pepper and avocado, slices of chicken breast and a bottle with a little dressing on the bottom. The bowl below gives a suggestion in which fruit is used. Also very fine.

In restaurant kitchens, they often make stock in this way: all vegetable trimmings that you can’t present, but are fine to eat – just think of leek leaves or carrot peels – put together in a pan and let it simmer. You get the tastiest broth, with which you can also make ridiculously good soups. You can also use the leftovers from the week in that soup. You get nice combinations and maybe variants that will never disappear from your life.
