Wasting food is never a good idea. It so happens that extra food gets left after everyone’s done eating; especially when there are guests at home and the food is prepared in larger quantity. One of the ways to manage leftover food is to share it with the people who are in need. (There are a lot of NGO’s which will pick up the food from your door step and deliver it to needy people) They’ll happily consume the delicacy. But then, you may not always have quantity of food to share and wonder what to do with it?
So, the only option left is to consume it in your family. Now, they may not like to eat the same food the next day, as most people find it boring. However, one can be smart about it. You can store the food in your Liebherr refrigerator and upcycle it into a tasty, exciting dish that everyone loves.
Here are some of the recipes to make delicious snacks using leftover food:
