Repurposing Leftovers To Make Delicious Meals

cooked rice urud pancakes
Over and beyond the financial costs, food waste has serious consequences for the environment. The Natural Resource Defense Council estimates that American households waste 30–40% of their food annually. This is a terrible waste of resources, both monetarily and in terms of the time, effort, and fuel required to raise, harvest, and transport the food to its final destination. Reusing leftovers in new meals can minimize family food waste. As a result, all the perishable food in the house will be used. Some other methods for accomplishing that goal are listed below.

Inspiring Cookbooks

I enjoy baking and cooking recipes from different cuisines. I find colourful and detailed cookbooks are an inspiration to try different recipes, and a delicious way to introduce healthy and flavourful dishes to family and friends. The books below are a few that I enjoy baking and cooking from.

Soft Boiled Eggs and Ramen Fusion Cookbook Giveaway

ramen cookbook and soft boiled eggs
With a new year comes many reminders for us to make new resolutions! However, I like making goals and resolutions throughout the year. Incorporating meals from different cuisines is an exciting way to start of 2016, so I explored Ramen dishes from Japanese cuisine. I learned a lot about these dishes from the DK Ramen Fusion Cookbook by Nell Benton and from watching The Mind of a Chef Season 1 Episode 1 on Netflix.

Warm French Molten Chocolate Cake With Whipped Cream

February is a month where love is celebrated, and many of us are looking for delicious recipes that we can make to impress our loved ones. I think topping our desserts, special breakfasts and beverages with whipped cream makes it extra special. My family and I enjoy whipped cream and use it a lot during the cold months over warm desserts and hot beverages like hot chocolate.

Beans with almonds

The I Love Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook” is the third vegetarian/vegan-themed cookbook from Kris Holechek Peters.
The book has 150 delicious, budget-friendly vegetarian (and vegan) options from breakfast to dinner and everything in between.  Some examples of recipes in the book are Pineapple Upside-Down Pancakes, Herbed Garlic Polenta Fries, Tuscan Tomato Soup, Tempeh Tacos and Pumpkin Spice Cobbler.  
I am not aware of TJ's or Trader Joe's myself, however the author believes that this company has quality food without GMOs, hydrogenated fats or food colouring.   This book is independently authored and published, and is not affiliated or associated with Trader Joe’s® Company.
I got to know a bit more about Rennet after reading this book.  Rennet is an ingredient found in cheese, which could have been derived from either animal intestine or microbial plants.  I don't buy cheese that has Rennet because the labels do not mention the source of Rennet.  Knowing this source of Rennet is important for vegetarian and people who have religious dietary restrictions.  The author says, that TJ's solves this problem by labelling the source of Rennet in the cheese that is sold there. 
Anyone with TJ's close by and would like to make vegan meals with fewer ingredients will benefit from this book.  
We enjoyed this Almond glazed green beans recipe from the book.
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp cane sugar 
4 cups green beans
1/4 cup sliced almonds
salt and pepper *

* I didn't add salt or pepper and halved the recipe.  

In a large sauté pan, over medium heat add the butter, then whisk the soya sauce and sugar.  Add the beans and cook covered in low heat till the beans are cooked.  Sprinkle the almonds on top and serve.
