Vegan Mofo ~ Leftovers & Multiple Dishes
I have a lot of things to blog about but want to hold off on the updates on Paco since we have another appointment later today. I do want to THANK everyone who has sent well wishes, vibes, prayers, thoughts, and such! I appreciate it so much, thank you!
Jumping in with this first post for Vegan MoFo - I want to talk about using left overs as well as using a food that I have used in a multiple dishes this past weekend.
I snacked on the baked tofu. But then I added it to the leftover mash combo for another meal idea.
But I didn't stop there! I then cooked up about 1/4 C of Red Quinoa and added the final leftovers to yet another meal. You can see this photo below. I have to say I was very impressed with myself. Getting multiple meals out of leftovers but also creating new meals as well as new leftovers and then new meals from those leftovers!
I am not the best at re-thinking meals using leftovers. I usually just use them as-is and eat them as straight-up leftovers. But I want to take that to the next level. I know we shouldn't eat the same thing over and over - we need to get a diverse diet with different foods and different food combos. But at the same time I don't want to waste food. That's another reason why I want to push myself in the leftover department. This may be a sub-category to my 2014 Vegan MoFo Adventure. But I want to stick with my annual theme and blog about new-to-me foods and recipes, too, so you will be seeing a lot of that here on my blog this month!
