...a Frugal use of leftovers...Vegan Goulash...

...whenever friends ask us out to eat...they sometimes worry that I won't be able to find anything to eat...and I try to reassure them that I've not been to a restaurant yet where I've been unable to find any vegan options...some restaurants are, of course, easier for vegans than others...
...and that almost proved to be the case this time...but never fear...they had french fries...and a salad...and sweet tea...so I was just fine...

...and when I say french fries...I mean FRENCH FRIES!!!...an order of fries came on a platter that would probably have served 4 as a side dish...so I had leftovers...and I brought them home in a box...
...but then the next day...that box of fries didn't look all that appetizing...so I decided to transform them into my Mom's Goulash...

...I just used the box as my cutting board and chopped up a small onion...
...then used the same 'cutting board' to dice up the fries...
...not being to particular about it...and I had quite the pile of chopped fries...

...it looks like Jack is hoping I'll drop some...
...then I heated some olive oil and cooked the onion...
...then added the leftover fries...
...gave it a few good stirs...to heat through and brown up a little bit...
...then I added some burger style TVP...reconstituted...
...and gave it a few more stirs...
...and I had a delicious and frugal meal from my leftover fries...
...now...where's the ketchup...

...Have you transformed any leftovers lately?...

~HAve a lovely day!

  2. I sure haven't made my version in a long time. Guess I should try it again. Frank's probably never had it. He'll want ketchup on his for sure, but I eat mine as is. MOM

  3. I try to make enough for lunch the next day - today I have my tomato and lentil mix that has green pepper and cauliflower added with some leftover chips (fries).
