I tend to plan leftovers, as what's better than curry or stew that's been left in the fridge overnight and reheated to fill a jacket potato? This week I had some genuinely left over food. I'd made a big pan of spicy rice the other evening but there was too much veg mixture so I put some to one side before adding the rice, and there it sat in the fridge. It needed to be used, as did the two flat mushrooms that I didn't stuff on Thursday, so I started to cobble something together. As well as the veg mixture I took a few cubes of roast sweet potato out of the freezer and half a sheet of puff pastry - I just cut the sheets in half when I buy them and shove them back in the box to freeze.
The bean mixture was heated up along with mashed sweet potato then I wrapped it with the pastry. There was still more left over amazingly so I stuffed the mushrooms with it. Into the oven it went.
I've never bought ready to eat rice before, but this was reduced to clear at Booths so we thought it was worth a try. I occasionally buy things like this to get ideas for new things to make myself. This was a winner, nice and spicy, I'll work on my own version.
No, I'm not a low carb person!
