Recipes To Transform Your Holiday Leftovers

When your holiday dinners are in the books, it’s not unlikely that you’ll have a few items to stow away. Nothing has to go to waste, so try these recipes to freshen up those leftovers.

Leftover Pot Pie

Pot pies are a great way to revitalize leftover ingredients, and this recipe is great for making the most of any turkey or chicken you might have in the fridge. In a pot, you’ll need to cook carrots and celery in butter, then pour in chicken broth to let it all simmer. Leftover gravy goes in next to add a creamy texture, followed by the turkey. You can opt for store-bought puff pastry for the crust, and it should come with instructions for baking it properly. If you’ve worked with puff pastry before, you already know that keeping the flaky bread crisp can be a challenge. That’s why it helps to bake the crusts separately so that the sensitive puff pastry can remain as firm and as crunchy as it should be.

Turkey Enchilada Quinoa Soup

Spice up that turkey with some Southwestern flare! This hearty soup deconstructs the classic enchilada and adds a filling portion of quinoa for a satisfying single-bowl meal. The turkey will be accompanied by classic enchilada fillings like black beans and sweet onion, while you can also add seasonal ingredients that you might have remaining from the holidays, like leftover sweet potato. The onions and potatoes will need to cook in oil for a few minutes until soft, then you’ll need to simmer them with green chiles, enchilada sauce, and chicken broth. Bring the mix up to a boil, add the quinoa, then cover the pot and lower the heat to a simmer. Once all the flavors have married, add the turkey, beans, and cheese, then cook it all for a few more minutes. Garnish the soup with avocado slices, cilantro, cheddar, and tortillas.
