There is no denying the fact that leftovers aren’t always the most glamourous of meals. But they sure save some time after a long day of work!
Although, does anyone else agree that some meals just taste better the next day? Below are just a few quick and easy meals to warm-up and enjoy if you don’t have much time on your side.
Not only do the flavoursome ingredients of a yummy red curry marinate overnight, but they actually taste so much better! Warm them up over a hot stove, and serve with fresh rice and a glass of dry white wine.
Any type of lasagne tastes good on the second day, and there is no denying that fact! Serve with a side of fresh vegetables and you have a winning lunch or dinner meal.
If you aren’t a fan of piping hot lentils, then enjoying them for leftovers is the second best option. The lentils themselves actually double in size, and the consistency of the entire soup is deliciously thick and filling.
Fry them, bake them, or simply pop them in the microwave for 2 minutes – meatballs taste good any way you choose to prepare them! Especially if they were baked in a tomato and garlic sauce which tastes amazing the next day. However, you might need some gum to cover up the garlic afterwards..
Casseroles take no less than 5 minutes to prepare for lunch the next evening, and they taste exactly the same as they did the previous day. The past filling is especially warm and fluffy, which is perfect for those cold winter days!
There’s just one food that taste good all the time, and that has to be pizza. If you’re warming in up the next morning, don’t waste your time with the oven or microwave which can turn it into a soggy mess. Simply lay it flat or an empty frying pan, and cook for 5 minutes. This way, you have a deliciously crunch pizza snack.
