Snacks from Leftovers

Here are two examples of me trying to creatively use up leftovers: leftover chicken wings, avocado, spinach and tortillas.

First, this:


Made of sliced chicken wings, with extra hot sauce. I microwaved the tortilla for about 10-20 seconds, smeared it with a layer of avocado, then some iceberg lettuce (mmm, junky lettuce!), then the (heated-up) hot chicken, then some sour cream and black pepper. Et voila!

That was lunch a few days ago. For today's lunch, I made naan from the tortilla bread, by lightly pan-frying on both sides 'til puffy and slightly crispy:


While that rested, I threw four large slices of portobello mushrooms in to the already-oiled pan, added some soy sauce, garlic powder and black pepper. I let it cook until the mushrooms had sopped up most of the oil and sauce and were a yummy texture, then tossed in a handful of spinach and cooked for a further 2-3 minutes. 


I quickly sliced some avocado, put that on the naan and then added the mushroom/spinach mixture. Topped with 2/3 of a Tofutti mozzarella slice and done!


To eat, fold it like a taco. and make sure you have a plate to catch mushroom-soy drippings!
