How to Use Up Leftover Vegetables

This past weekend I had a small get together at my house. We had food… and lots of it. As the host, I always find that I am left with ample amounts of leftovers that nobody seems to want to take home… in this case it was a tray of veggies.

Short of eating them for lunch every day with dip, I thought that I would whip up a little stir-fry for dinner…

Everything is so easy when you have everything in the fridge…

Mushroom Teriyaki Stir-Fry

1 tbsp olive oil
Assortment of fresh vegetables (broccoli, carrots, snowpeas, onion, peppers, mushrooms, corn, and whatever else you may have on hand)
1 bottle of prepared Teriyaki sauce
4 cups of cooked rice (white or brown)

1. Prepare rice as per package directions.
2. Heat oil in pan on medium high heat. Stir-fry vegetables until tender crisp.
3. Add Teriyaki sauce. Stir until all vegetables are covered and sauce is warm.
4. Serve stir-fry over rice.

Makes 4 servings.

    My favourite way to use leftover vegetables is to just make soup, our family staple. I'll make soup out of anything! 🙂
