    Kitchen Leftovers Meal Plan

    Leftovers are a valuable resource in any household kitchen. Accumulate too many, however, and they fast become contents of your compost or garbage bin – both a waste of money and a weight on the environment.

    The following meal plan is designed to help you make the most of common kitchen leftovers – the offcuts in your vegie crisper, the frozen meats in the freezer, the half-opened cans of food sitting on your fridge shelf. Recipes like these will help you think about how to transform old meals and ingredients into new.

    Make sure to check your fridge and freezer before you shop to get the most from what you already have.

    Add these recipes to your shopping list by selecting the ‘Add to Meal Planner’ button. Add individual recipes to your shopping list by clicking through to their menu page and selecting ‘Add to Meal Planner’.
