Fun With Leftovers

Red Beans and Rice Leftover Jambalaya

The mayor of New Orleans is gonna kill me…

Because while traditional jambalaya is not tossed together in a matter of minutes from leftover red beans and rice, my version for last night’s dinner was. With some crunchy sautéed carrots and the lightness from the swiss chard and peas, this “jambalaya” was simply delicious. With sweet shrimp added to the hearty sausage, the dish was in perfect balance!

And isn’t that the beauty of cooking? So next time you get sick of your leftovers, let your creativity kick in; trust me you can find a way to breathe some life into anything. And the best tip of them all: just about everything tastes good in an omelet. Even pasta! Thanks Kelly! So what are your favorite leftover overhauls?
