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.

Pumpkin and Spinach Frittata

For children Quick and easy Good for leftovers

Total time 35 minutes
Serves 4

 Pumpkin and Spinach Frittata

Ingredients

  • 10 eggs
  • ½ cup milk or cream
  • salt and pepper
  • 200 g cooked butternut pumpkin pieces
  • ½ red onion, finely sliced (optional)
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach leaves
  • 100 g feta or goat’s cheese

Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease a 20 cm × 20 cm baking dish or loaf tin. Lightly whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl or jug and put aside.

Combine pumpkin, onion and spinach in the prepared dish making sure the spinach winds in and around the pumpkin. Pour egg mixture over the top, crumble with cheese and cook in oven for 30 minutes. To check if it is ready, give it a wobble or touch the top in the centre of the dish. If not set, give it another 5 minutes and check again.

Allow to rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
