Any type of left over potato can be used this way. If you’ve got some left over roast vegetables, potatoes or parsnips from a previous meal, just use it to recreate this dish… If you didn’t enjoy it, just don’t try it again… Either way, you have to eat… and if on a budget you use what you find and make it work.
For this meal, I had a baked potato which place in my trusted lunch
box. I then topped it with a tablespoon of grated cheese, then the beans and more cheese. I added freshly grinded black pepper and thyme from my balcony.
At lunch time, all I have to do is place the lunch box slightly ajar in the microwave at work for 5 full minutes, then transfer in my plate… Done and tasty!
