DAY 3: Use up your leftovers!

Posted: Sunday 27th December 2015 by Community

Feed the family with Christmas dinner leftovers. Turkey and Cranberries pack a punch in a pie and there’s not a peep to be heard from little ones as they tuck in to bubble and squeak made from a mash up of veggies and sprouts.

Did you know?

Almost 50% of the total amount of food thrown away in the UK comes from our homes. We throw away 7 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year in the UK, and more than half of this is food and drink we could have eaten.

Love Food Hate Waste

Christmas is a time of eating and excess, but the average home throws away £700 worth of food* each year! With a bit of planning you can not only reduce your shopping bill but serve some really tasty dishes too. We love Jamie Oliver's leftovers recipes to inspire us, and after a lunchtime conversation around the office our favourite dishes are turkey pie, bubble and squeek, turkey curry and Ellen loves left over Christmas pudding with stilton on the top!
