In this new series on my blog I will jot down ideas for using up ingredients that almost infallibly end up going bad in my fridge because after having used about half a package I don’t know what to do with the rest.

Today: Sun-dried tomatoes

Problem: Hubby loves them, I like them in small doses.

Dish in which the first half of a package is usually used: Risotto

Ideas for using them up:

– simply add them to salad dressing (tested)

– add them to grilled cheese sandwiches (tested)

– maybe blitz them and make a tasty pasta sauce? Or tomato butter?

– chop them up and add them to a quiche

– use them up in a chilaquiles casserole

– beef up a spinach and artichoke dip with sun-dried tomatoes

– make vegetarian Spaghetti Carbonara

– just eat them right from the bag/jar (suggested by my fabulous ex-roomie, who may be too busy to cook sometimes!? 😉 )

Ideas that did not work in the past:

– do not put them on pizza – it’s gross, depending on the herb mix they’re pickled in.
