What to do with your Christmas leftovers

You’ve eaten copious amounts of roast potatoes, gorged on Christmas pudding, and inhaled plates of veggies. Now it’s that lovely time between Christmas and New Year where you eat all the leftovers and enjoy all your new gifts. If you’re bored of turkey sandwiches, here’s a list of things you can do with your Chrismas leftovers.

Leftover Canapés

Sure, you can just nibble on the leftover canapés but why not make a meal of it. Cook a bowl of Slim Rice then throw veggies and your leftover canapés on top. Dress with a splash of Garlic & Herb sauce and Bob’s your uncle! It might seem simple but it’s a nutritious and low-carb way to eat the last of your canapés.

Leftover Ham

Ham can be a tricky ingredient to create a meal out of. Often ham is relegated to sandwiches. Try shredding ham and adding it to melting nachos. It’s a perfect lunch to share with friends and family in front of the TV. Alternatively, grab your leftover veg and combine with ham, stock, and crème fraîche for a staple bake. If you want to create something a bit more special, make savoury crumble to add on top of your bake for a hearty dinner.

Leftover Turkey

Turkey sandwiches and salads are fine once but they can become a little boring. Try something new this Winter with a turkey ramen. Mix your leftover veggies with garlic and miso. Then, combine the ramen with soft boil eggs, your turkey, and No Drain Slim Noodles. A fresh and wholesome meal with low carbs. If you want a meal that’s more traditional and good for all the family, why not make a turkey minestrone. Cook bacon and veggies, then add celeriac, potato, borlotti beans and chicken stock. Bring to boil and cook your Slim Pasta Penne. Throw it all in a big pot and serve up with crusty rolls. Filling, sugar-free, and delicious.

Leftover Dessert

As if! There is no such thing as leftover dessert, especially at Christmas. Indulge this season and enjoy that extra scoop of ice cream, gateau or Christmas pudding. You deserve it!
