NEW YEAR, NEW USES
Food is front and center during most Jewish holidays, and the new year celebration of Rosh Hashanah (starting Oct. 2 this year) is no exception. Even people who aren't hosting a meal will probably end up with leftovers, because making too much food -- and, often, forcing guests to take some home -- is part of the tradition. Some dishes, such as the rich and slightly sweet noodle kugel, are rarely left over, but there's bound to be plenty of spare proteins such as brisket, chicken, and fish, as well as sides ranging from roasted veggies to mixed salads. Using the leftovers to create new dishes is an exciting culinary start to a new year and can help avoid waste. These 15 ideas for leftovers put a fresh spin on the typical Rosh Hashanah menu.
