A few days ago I posted a recipe using bok-choy from our garden. This week I decided to use the same recipe with a few changes.
I used broccoli instead of bok-choy, peanuts instead of cashews and pumpkin seeds instead of sunflower seeds. It turned out every bit as good as the bok-choy salad.
The next day I pulled a small piece of steak out of the freezer and decided to fix a stir-fry. I used the steak, garlic, celery, a sweet bell pepper, some carrots and the leftover broccoli salad. I used the leftover dressing from the salad (diluted with a little broth) for the sauce.
This was so absolutely fantastic. It isn’t often that I can throw together a little of this and a little of that and use up the leftovers and have the meal turn out so great. What a great way to recycle leftovers!
