    Easy stuffed peppers that are quick to make and very filling. This is also a great way to use leftover rice from a takeaway or last night's supper. For variation, add anything you like, including different types of mince or other chopped veg.

    I love egg fried rice and it is a great accompaniment for any barbecued, or grilled meat or fish. I like it with chicken cooked in a hoisin sauce glaze. As long as you use cooked rice that has been cooled completely in the fridge for an hour or so, everything should work out fine.

    This is a great way of making use of any leftover rice. The rice is simply stir-fried with mushrooms, baby sweetcorn, carrots, peppers and peas. Totally easy and so delicious.

    This dish is a great way of making use of leftover rice. Scrambled eggs are stir-fried with cucumber and rice, then seasoned and served. Feel free to use oil instead of lard and substitute in any vegetables you prefer.

    Along with kimchi, bibimbap takes its place among the most popular foods in Korean cuisine. In the Korean household, it's a traditional way of using up rice and leftovers. Literally meaning 'mixed rice,' it's rice with stir fried vegetables, strips of beef, flavoured with a spicy pepper paste and topped with a fried egg. Delicious!

    A quick and easy dish! Can also be made with pasta - both are really tasty. This is a great way to use up leftover rice if you don't have the quick pre-steamed wok rice to hand, and you can adjust the seasonings to taste - add additional veg, if desired.
