Ideas to take advantage of the food that we have left over

What to do with food leftovers? Can they be frozen? What recipes can we make? We reveal everything you need to know about what to do with the food that you have left over.

On more than one occasion it has surely happened to you, you have cooked and even trying to adjust the ingredients so that you do not have too much food, as it turns out that once again the stew, stew, or any other food has been quite abundant.

For these occasions we can use our imagination or ingenuity to take advantage of what we have left by making another menu for the next day or choose to freeze and have it already prepared for another day.

In case we decide to freeze to eat it at another time, we must take into account  preserving the food properly.

We will keep the food in containers that close hermetically, and of course before packing them we will have allowed the food to have previously cooled down and at room temperature.

If we decide not to freeze it and keep it in the refrigerator to consume it in a few days, we will also keep it in containers with the same characteristics and once the food has cooled down.

When the food that we have left over we are going to keep it in the refrigerator  we must take into account, depending on the food, the time in which we must consume it so that it does not spoil:

  • Meals made with fish, meat, eggs, no more than two days.
  • Stews, stews, soups, broths, vegetable creams, no more than 5 days.
  • Meals made with legumes, potatoes, rice, pasta, no more than 5 days.
  • Meals with sauces keep them for only 24 hours and consume them within that period of time.

If you choose to freeze your food

If instead we choose to freeze the food that we have left, paying attention to these tips will be very useful, since not everything can be frozen, nor in the same way:

  • Meals that contain potatoes we must bear in mind that once the potatoes are cooked, if we freeze them when reheating them, they will be harder, we could remove the potatoes before freezing the food.
  • In the event that we overflow with rice soup, or another food recipe that includes rice and broth like a rice broth, it is better not to freeze it, when reheating it we will notice that it has lost consistency.
  • If you have prepared a sauce such as tomato for example and you have enough left over, better freeze it in freezer bags, we can do the same with other sauces.
  • When freezing broths, creams or stews, do not fill the container to the brim, take a container larger than the amount that we are going to freeze, we must leave space since these meals contain liquid and the liquids when frozen increase in volume.
  • The bread that we have left over, if we have bought a lot, we can also freeze it in freezer bags, done it the same day or at the same time that we have bought it.

And what recipes can we prepare with the food that we have left over?

To take advantage of the food that we have left over and also surprise the family, nothing better than to make our imaginations fly, we will have delicious dishes.

An easy way to dispose of both the meat and fish that we have left over and present a different dish is to use both croquettes and meatballs.

To take advantage of meat and fish we can also prepare other recipes such as dumplings, cannelloni, fish or meat cakes, stuffing peppers or other vegetables such as zucchini, stuffing aborigines, potatoes, eggs.

In the event that we have over rice, pasta or legumes, we can take advantage of them by preparing salads, for example.

When we have already cooked vegetables left over, with them we can prepare tortillas, a vegetable cake, make a vegetable scramble, a vegetable pizza, salad, adding a little homemade or industrial broth to these vegetables we can also make a puree or a vegetables cream.

When the fruit is ripe, depending on the fruit, we can choose to take advantage of it in juices, make a smoothie, and include it in a salad, jams, and compotes.

Prepare a salad and accompany it with a yogurt can suggest an idea for dessert; also make a jelly with sliced fruit.
