I love leftoverroasted vegetables andchicken or tofu and enjoythem hot or cold – Isometimes add them to awrap the next day. If youhave access to an oven ormicrowave, leftovercurries and soups workreally nicely – I love a peaand mint soup. Anotherfavourite would besalmon fillet and stir-friedgreens. These are fabeaten cold as a saladthe next day and I addan extra sprinkle ofseeds and nuts ordried fruit.’
