Bethenny Frankel may have begun her empire as a natural foods chef, but now she's a busy working mom who relies on leftovers to feed her family.
"Everything I make is always a version of something leftover," the Bethenny Ever After star writes in her blog. "Most foods have legs. Fish really won't last more than one day, but vegetables, poultry, and meat can probably go another day."
Not so great for serving twice? "Salads that are already dressed should be tossed unless they're simply cucumber, onion and tomato. Greens get wilted." Save your veggies, but the 40-year-old says she adds "a new fresh vegetable or herb to brighten it up. For example, I'd add onion and tomato to leftover spinach, or fresh parsley to zucchini."
Mrs. Hoppy advises fellow on-the-go mommies to remember what they've seen on menus when reinventing their leftovers. The Skinnygirl herself took a chicken Caesar salad and added cheddar, grape tomatoes, red onion, raw corn off the cob and light ranch dressing for a tasty new twist. Hungry yet?
