Mrs Green’s ‘use it up!’ meal
This has to be one of the simplest meals to create and as I’m gearing up for my own personal ‘no food waste’ zero waste week I thought I’d share.
It’s quick, convenient and uses up scraps of things that might otherwise be wasted.
We eat this meal once every 10 days or so, so I thought I’d share it with you.
We call is ‘pizza’ but you probably call it cheese on toast.
Ages ago we shared a wonderful pizza recipe from Sooz. Hers was the real deal and even though it’s become a favourite here, I still use mine too because I can be a bit of a domestic slob. What I like about this recipe is you can use virtually anything you have to hand, and it uses up the items we often have little bits left of – crusts of bread, a tablespoon of tuna from a can or the end of a block of cheese:
Step one: Spread pieces of bread with tomato ketchup or puree:
Step two: top with whatever you like – we had a bit of tuna left, so used that up. You can add ham, onions, sweetcorn, pineapple, mushrooms, peppers – just see what’s in the fridge and use it up!:
Step three – top with grated cheese:
Step four: Whack under a hot grill for a few minutes until the cheese melts:
Et voila – instant pizza resulting in zero food waste!
What is the simplest recipe you make for using up food scraps?
