1.  Quick pasta meal

First, cook chopped garlic and onion in a pan. Stir in diced tomatoes and tomato paste. Then add the vegetables and cook until cooked through. Toss with cooked pasta and serve with some grated parmesan or crumbled feta.

2.  Tasty salad

Dress with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh basil.

3.  Hearty soup

Perfect for the cooler months. In a saucepan, cook chopped garlic and onions. Add chopped vegies and vegetable stock. Bring to boil. Use a hand blender or food processor and process till smooth.

4.  Just add eggs

Make omelettes with almost any combination of leftover vegies: tomato, mushroom, onion, capsicum, zucchini, potato, etc.

5.  Fantastic frittata

Mix 3 eggs, 2 cups vegetables and a 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese, season to your liking. Pour into a greased baking dish and sprinkle with rosemary. Bake at 180ºC for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool for 5 minutes. Serve.

6.  Stir Fry

Make a stir-fry: Toss chopped leftover veg in a pan with soy sauce or sauce of choice.

7.  Quick Curry

For a quick curry: fry onion and garlic, then add coconut milk and curry paste and cubed leftover vegies.  Serve with some steamed rice.

8.  Bubble and squeak

For a quick side dish, mash 3 cups of chopped leftover roasted vegetables. Whisk 2 eggs then add 1/4 cup of flour and 1 tablespoon of water. Combine with mashed vegetables. Mould into patties. Spray with oil. Pan-fry each side on medium heat until crisp and golden.

9.  Stew

Use up leftover vegetables by simply adding them to a stew. Cook meat as you normally would, then add stock and chopped leftover vegies until heated through.

I was born in country NSW and am now firmly saturated in city life, still we cannot be without our garden, parks and home cooking. Cooking has always been my creative outlet and I'm pretty relaxed about it, knowing it doesn't always turn out as planned and sometimes that's awesome!! I will tell people I follow the recipe the first time but in truth, I'm tweaking almost immediately. I've always thought myself quite healthy, but when we created our very own small person I realised there's hidden surprises in most processed foods and with a bit more effort we can give her the best start in life.
