Nextovers are Next Level Leftovers|
What do we mean? "Nextovers" use the components of a dish you've previously cooked and rework it into a completely different thing so you don't get bored eating the same thing day after day.
The bulk of the rep is already done --- relax and roll with these dinner ideas.
Green Chicken Curry
Take the remaining chicken from a simple roast chicken and use it in to make fresh green chicken curry that can be on the table in 30 minutes!
The bright flavours will taste like Spring and no one will tire of this recipe!
P.S. a whole chicken is your most economical cut. Go far with this!
Apple Cider Pulled Pork
Take a pork shoulder roast (another economical cut, btw) and make roasted pulled pork for dinner on the weekend. Now you have shreddy and ready pork!
🌲Top a breakfast rice bowl with shredded pork, avocado, tomatoes and a fried egg!
🌲Fry up leftover pork and add to tacos.
🌲Toss shredded pork into a chili recipe instead of ground beef.
Bob's Split Pea Soup
"Soupifying" ingredients is a key nextover strategy because you can soupify pretty much anything. Got extra ham, pork hock, farmer sausage , bacon, or a combo of all three kicking around? You can literally throw everything in a pot to simmer, stir it a bit, and have delicious soup in about an hour.
What are your nextover strategies that save you time and make better meals? We'd love to hear from you.
