This works best with Asian food, but you can definitely experiment! Combine leftovers, sauce and all, with cooked rice and some broth for a quickie leftovers soup. Depending on how saucy your dish was, you might want to spice things up with a little soy sauce, minced ginger, or garlic. If you’re feeling fancy, garnish with chopped cilantro or scallions!
4. Fried Rice
Whether you had a stir fry or beans and rice, leftover rice makes a tasty base for a quick meal.
In a large frying pan, combine the cooked rice with your leftover food and stir to heat evenly. If the rice is looking dry, you might need to add around 1/4c water or broth to the pan to moisten things up. The rice will absorb most of the liquid, and the rest will cook down to make a yummy sauce.
