Don’t know what to do with all of your Thanksgiving leftovers? Try one of these six healthy and hearty dishes:
Make sure your leftover gravy’s fat is skimmed away. Then, use the gravy as a base. Add leftover turkey and vegetables. Thicken your Harvest Stew by incorporating sweet potatoes. Cook to 165°F.
Spread cranberry sauce on your leftover sliced turkey; add shredded greens and toasted pecans. Then, wrap the ingredients in whole-wheat tortillas.
Blend cranberries, unsweetened frozen yogurt and orange juice.
Freeze turkey stock in small amounts. Then, thaw the turkey stock in your refrigerator. Cook couscous, pasta, rice or soup with the stock.
Crunchy Turkey Salad
Toss cubed turkey, celery, apples, light mayonnaise and shredded baby spinach together.
Mix stuffing with eggs and cook through, pancake-style.
