Random Recipes

fwe-9Welcome to Random Recipes where we have recipes for Luscious Leftovers and Cupboard Clearouts!

When it comes to cooking, having a well stocked kitchen is essential. This will allow you to rustle up a quick and tasty meal from very simple and basic ingredients or if there are leftovers, be it a couple of potatoes, some bread, half a chicken – you can make a fine supper for yourself.

We have some great recipes and meal plans from our Stop Food Waste Ambassadors as well as a selection of recipe booklets that we have been fortunate to collaborate on with various different groups around the country.

We are always looking for new recipes so if you have any please contact us and we will share them here and through social media.
