    Default Creative leftovers

    Does anybody have good leftover recipes for all that turkey, or whatever?

    Post away madly if you do.

    freeze what you can - that way you don't get sick of eating the same things for days, and you can take them out later on.
    we don't do thanksgiving, but with turkey leftovers from christmas, my mum just makes the usual but with variations so you use turkey instead of something else... turkey risotto, turkey 'paella', and then you can even use the carcass to make stock and make a big pot au feu with veggies, potatoes, etc...

    Cube up some turkey and put one layer down in some sort of rectangle/square container you can pu in the oven, take your fav frozen veggies and layer those on top, drizzle some gravy, a layer of potato if you have it, and finish with a layer of stuffing.

    Put it in the oven until hot and the stuffing is cruchy in places.

    And serve.


    I also make turkey, stuffing, yam and cranberry wraps for lunch.

    Ex MIL made a nice soup with leftover turkey, veggies & barley. Don't have the recipe, but it wouldn't be too hard to wing it.

    I love soup. I used to make chipotle turkey soup with smoked turkey. And I love barley. Damn! Now I wish I had me some turkey!

    Forgive my colonial ignorance but what is cilantro? I've seen it used in several recipes here and have no idea. I probably know it by another name. It took me years to work out that scallions are spring onions, and eggplants are aubergines.

    Cilantro is most often used in salsa and other Mexican dishes. But I think it actually originated in China (also used in Chinese cuisine). It's a herb, kinda looks like parsely but lighter green and a little more leafy.

    Cilantro - pronounced [sih-LAHN-troh]

    This member of the carrot family is also referred to as Chinese Parsley and Coriander. It is actually the leaves (and stems) of the Coriander plant. Cilantro has a very pungent odor and is widely used in Mexican, Caribbean and Asian cooking. The Cilantro leaves look a bit like flat Italian parsley and in fact are related.

    It's funny -- in Canada and I think the U.S. the fresh herb is called cilantro, and the dried spice is called coriander. Whatever, I'm practically addicted to them both.

    You know if you go to the ethnic/spice isle at a supermarket, they have corriander powder. I had no idea it was made from cilantro. I thought they were 2 different things...

    In Asian (Indian) stores you can also get corriander seeds which are ground to make the powder. The seeds/powder and the fresh leaves have a different flavour but are somehow the same.

    Now I know what it is, here's a quick and delish recipe:

    Marinade some pork steaks/chops in a mix of soy sauce, corriander/cilantro powder and crushed garlic for a few hours. Then grill/barbecue. Heaven.
