Overview

Occasionally we have parts of meals that we couldn't finish and so end up with leftovers. Take this as an opportunity to create a 'Second Chance' meal.

To help you get started we're sharing some of our favourite leftover recipes that use common leftover ingredients such as chicken, pasta and veggies. The recipes have been provided by Hello Table, Cumberland Council from their Love Your Leftovers app and cookbook as well as Go for 2&5®.

Want to share your own recipe? Visit our Facebook page and let everyone know about your 'Second Chance' meal.

Cooking with your leftovers and ingredients you have at home are just two of the things we can do to reduce food waste. We can also plan our meals, write a shopping list, measure serving sizes and store food right to keep it fresh.
