How to use up leftover chicken stock
- Quick quinoa
Fry a sliced onion until soft, then add a crushed garlic clove and 250g quinoa. Fry for 3-4 minutes, add stock to cover by 1cm, then simmer until the quinoa is tender (top up with water if it dries out too early). Season, then stir in spinach and any chopped leftover meat/veg.
- Egg-fried rice
Heat a knob of butter, then fry a sliced onion. In a bowl, beat a couple of eggs with a splash of milk. Add cooked rice to the onion with a glug of chicken stock, then cook for 5 minutes or until the rice is hot. Add the eggs and stir-fry until set. Sprinkle with chopped spring onion, coriander and soy sauce.
