With Christmas over, often begs the question – “What do I do with my leftovers!?”
Well if you haven’t divvied them up between family members, read on! We have some beautiful whole food based, gluten free ideas to use up your Christmas Day leftovers!
- Ham or Turkey Buckwheat Wraps
Probably one of the easiest ways to transform your leftovers into a new meal! Making our delicious Buckwheat Wrap recipe and filling it with your leftover meat and salad!
- Roast Vegetable Fritters
Leftover with an abundance of roast vegetables? Make yourself some simple roast vegetable fritters! Mash two-thirds starchy vegetables such as potato, kumara (sweet potato) and pumpkin with whatever other roast vegetables you like, an egg (or two – if you’re making lots), herbs of choice, salt, pepper and mix to combine. We love roast onions in this too! If you find your mixture is a little too wet, add a tablespoon of our organic tapioca flour. Pan fry in coconut oil until golden brown on each side.
- Christmas Ham Omelette
Another easy but delicious recipe for your leftover Christmas Ham! Nothing beats eggs to start the day. Whisk 2 eggs and season with salt. Heat butter or coconut oil in a small non-stick skillet over a medium-low heat and add your eggs. Using a rubber spatula, lightly move the eggs around as they set up. When mostly set, add your chopped ham, any favourite vegetables such as spinach and allow to set to your liking. Flip one half over with the spatula and serve!
- Leftover Pizza Our Keto Pizza Base is the perfect way to use your leftovers! You can add any of your leftovers from roast vegetables to leftover meat to this base, then serve and eat. YUM!
- Roast Vegetable Salad
Roast vegetables can be transformed into the main course with a few simple additions! We love tossing them into a bowl with homemade mayo, toasted organic pumpkin and sunflower seeds plus your favourite source of protein – whether that’s bacon or our gorgeous organic chickpeas.
And there you have it! Our delicious, simple, gluten free leftover ideas! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and your leftovers nourish you for the coming days.
