Cooking tip from food editor Sheryl Julian


If the fridge is full of bits and pieces of veggies and fish meat, try making Bottom of the Fridge Stew. Begin by sauteing an onion in a little oil, add chopped cooked meat, chili, chicken, or other protein, stock to cover, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Add 1/2 cup canned beans or cooked pasta, and broccoli, kale, or other greens (you can even add chopped leftover salad). Simmer 10 minutes and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
