Using leftovers are a great way of reducing waste and ultimately saving money. If you are not going to use them straight away simply place them in a freezer bag and freeze!
For this week's Family Favourite recipe I am sharing with you my turkey curry that has added goodness. Chicken can also be used, but I used turkey as I had a lot left over from Christmas and New Year.
This dish is a great way to get some added greens into the children.
This is what I did...
Turkey Curry with Added Goodness
500g leftover turkey or chicken, diced
1 red onion, chopped
3 stems of kale, stalks removed and chopped
2 carrots, grated
6 mushrooms, chopped
1ltr - 1.5ltr chicken stock
2tbsp mild/medium curry powder
2tbsp plain flour
3tbsp mango chutney
1 - Melt the butter and oil together in a saute pan over a medium heat
2 - Add the onions and grated carrots and gently cook for 5 minutes
3 - Add the grated carrots and the chopped kale and cook for a further 5 minutes
4 - Stir in the curry powder and flour to create a roux
5 - Gradually pour in the stock until you have the desired consistency and bring to the boil stirring continuously
6 - Mix in the mango chutney and the turkey then simmer for 10 minutes
7 - Once the turkey has heated through stir in the cream and serve with wholegrain rice and naan bread
Enjoy and here's to a great 2015 full of delicious meals x
