Have you recently had friends and family around for a BBQ and overcooked? Did you go a little crazy with the amount of food you bought and now have loads of leftovers? This blog will help give you ideas for getting the best use out of them.
One-Pot Leftover Sausage Pasta Recipe - A dish cooked all in one pot and a fantastic way to use up leftover BBQ meats.
1 A teaspoon of dried basil
2 cups of spinach (chopped)
½ white onion diced
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 carrot chopped
2 cloves of garlic diced
2 tomatoes diced
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
3-4 leftover sausages sliced
3 cups of chicken stock
300g of a pasta shell of your choice
1 cup of grated cheese
Using a big frying pan on medium heat, add the olive oil, carrot, onion and garlic. Fry off for around 5 minutes until you can see it starting to soften and turn brown.
Once soften and brown, add the tomato paste and mix in. Then add the tomatoes, basil sausage and spinach.
Using a separate pan, boil the pasta for around 7minutes.
Pour in the chicken stock and then add in the dried pasta until both elements are fully combined.
Place with a lid and let it simmer for 6 minutes, check on the dish every couple of minutes to avoid it sticking to the bottom of the dish.
Remove lid and serve with cheese.
Sweetcorn Grilled Fritters - A great way to use up leftover BBQ sides which are also super healthy.
43g of sweetcorn
85g of all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon of baking powder
½ teaspoon of black pepper
A handful of chopped parsley
78ml of milk
43g of Cornstarch
In a large bowl: whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking powder, pepper and parsley. Add the milk and blend with a wooden spoon until the consistency is thick and mixed thoroughly.
Add the grilled corn and mix well with the flour mixture.
In a frying pan on medium heat, add a tiny bit of vegetable oil to the pan.
Using a large ladle, scoop the corn mixture out and place onto the pan. Gently press down on the mound down so it's flattened. Fry each side for 5 minutes until they have turned brown.
Top Tip - The corn fritters are best to eat on the day they are made but can be kept in the fridge for up to one day.
