I always love seeing what's been cluttering up your kitchen cupboards and what you made with it, but I thought we were exceptionally creative this month, using up everything from half a bag of pecans and a glut of cucumbers to black pudding ! Without further ado, here's this month's round-up of eco-friendly and economical offerings :
Hoi Sin Chicken. A delicious meal made with leftover cooked spaghetti and the end of a tin of hoi sin sauce, along with some chicken breasts and veggies - who'd have thought leftovers could be so tasty ?!
Another classic fridge-dive masterpiece from Jane over at Onions and Paper - Tomato & Egg Tart. I definitely have to try this becaise it looks delicious.
Claire over at Ninja Killer Cat created these Broccoli, Sweetcorn & Feta Cheese Fritters with the contents of her fridge. I love the bright colours and they certainly pack in the 5-a-day too.
Good Old Fashioned Country Chicken - broccoli went into this dish too but it made its way into #KitchenClearout because it used up a packet of stale crackers that had been lingering in the cupboard for far too long.
Moving on to the sweet treats, I have a cupboard full of Ready Brek that nobody is eating so these Cinnamon Raisin Ready Brek Muffins were a great way of using some up. I wonder what else I can make with it - any ideas?
Proving that #KitchenClearout recipes can also be incredibly tasty, these Mini Pecan Pies were a triumph and used up the end of a bag of pecans. I might have to buy some more now though to make some more.
If you're wondering what to eat this Sunday and want a twist on the usual roast chicken, how about Galina from Chez Maximka's Whole Roasted Curry Chicken? It looks amazing and I can imagine the wonderful smells wafting around the house as it cooked.
When I ended up with two and a half cucumbers in the fridge, I knew I needed to take action ! The result was a light, refreshing Creamy Cucumber & Tomato Salad.
I wasn't the only one with a glut of cucumbers though and Alison from Dragons & Fairydust got incredibly inventive, making Braised Cucumber in Orange Sauce. Apparently they were very tasty.
I'd won some black pudding in a haggis hamper a few months ago and put it straight in the freezer because I was feeling a bit squeamish about trying it, so these Black Pudding Stuffed Potatoes were perfect for making it more palatable.
The non-black pudding version was a hit with the kids too - Mexican Stuffed Potatoes. Great for using up half a tin of red kidney beans.
That brings us to the end of another great collection for turning the leftovers and odds-and-ends into belly-fill rather than landfill, which is always a good thing! Thanks to everyone who linked up and I look forward to seeing what you come up with this month.
