Having leftovers is such a joy. Cooking an extra large batch of something so that you can reap the rewards the next day, or in the next few weeks, is very satisfying, time saving and thrifty too. Even better if you can store the leftovers in a dish which you can then pop straight in the oven. Minimal washing up; and that’s never a bad thing! I have been cooking with Pyrex dishes over the last few weeks, seeing how they fit in my kitchen and with my cooking. I’ve got a few recipe ideas below for you and there’s a giveaway so you can get your hands on your own set of Pyrex.
I was sent three Pyrex dishes to try from Harts of Stur. Harts of Stur are based in Dorset and are one of the UK’s largest retailers (in store and online) of kitchenware and cookware. I’d certainly like to go and have a look round their shop!
What I liked about the Pyrex Cook and Go dishes
- The Pyrex Cook and Go range appealed to me because you can pretty much use it anywhere: freezer, fridge, oven, microwave (the latter two without the lid).
- Having the lid means no covering the dishes with cling film or foil for storage which means no waste. The lids really are no spill too; I tested them!
- They stack well inside each other so they don’t take up much room in the cupboards when you’re not using them.
- They can go in the dishwasher.
- I think they look neat and smart and you can tell they are hard wearing. I know I’ll be using these for years.
A few weeks ago I roasted a whole load of summer vegetables: peppers, tomatoes, courgettes and aubergines with some garlic. Some of it I stirred through pasta for dinner that night. I cooked a big batch of pasta up too and stirred the leftover veg and pasta together. When I come to cook this up I’ll put a little sliced mozzarella over the top and pop it in the oven for a quick pasta bake.
I love moussaka but it is so time consuming to make. So I almost always make extra portions! I served up one portion with crumbled feta and toasted pitta bread. The leftovers went into the freezer and then a few weeks later I defrosted it overnight and then topped it with some sliced potatoes and béchamel sauce for a no-fuss moussaka! You can find my moussaka recipe here.
This rainbow carrot tart was huge as I didn’t want to waste any pastry. The small rectangular Pyrex dish was ideal for keeping a corner piece for lunch the next day.
