[Food] Making Leftover Food Fun with Mission Foods

We waste 15,000 tonnes of food daily
20% are untouched leftovers that are still edible - imagine all the hungry people we could have fed! This is a very alarming number and I'm guilty of contributing to it as well.
Why do we waste so much food? For one, sometimes leftover food looks so 'sad' and unappetising while others simply do not want to eat the same thing twice in a row. But what if we could change up your leftovers and transform them into a new dish?

Satay and Peanut Hummus Pita

I don't think we ever have leftover satay but you can just use any leftover meat!
-Marinate red onions in lime juice and salt for 10 minutes
-Blend chickpeas, satay sauce, garlic, lime, and olive oil for hummus
-Stuff the pitas with satay (or any meat), chickpea-satay sauce hummus, cucumber, coriander, and marinated onions
Review: Pitas are a good choice if you like carbs as they provide a soft bite.

Szechuan-spiced Chicken Wrap

Made from.. Chicken rice LOL
-Wrapped in Mission Onion and Chives Supersoft Wraps along with cucumber, coriander, and the yum yum sauce
-Sauce is made mostly of ingredients we already have : ginger, garlic, sesame oil, spring onions, soy sauce, chilli oil, black vinegar, and Szechuan pepper.
Review: This wrap style is good if you have a lot of leftover and it's so easy to eat.

Curry Chicken Foldover

-Add your choice of veges to your leftover chicken curry; zucchini and corn were added here
-Place your wrap on the pan, sprinkle cheese and place chicken curry on top
-Once the cheese has melted, fold the wrap over and press to seal (the cheese holds it together)
Review: Despite the name 'Mission Supersoft 6-Grain Wraps', it's not dry and coarse at all.
I actually forgot about them in the fridge so my leftovers became leftovers. As we all know.. leaving food in the fridge really dries them out so I was concerned that my food would be hard and dry already but to my shock, they survived! After a few rounds in the microwave, they were superbly soft and not dry at all. None of them got soggy and still held their shape. I especially like how convenient they are and how they're not oily so it feels healthier.
