It always pays to know simple and unique ways to use up your leftovers at home. Turning days-old meals into new dishes helps food from going to waste and prevents you from having to eat the exact same thing too many days in a row. If you’ve got some leftovere kare-kare in the fridge this week, we found a cool hack you’ll want to try: Local food blogger ForkSpoonManila‘s Kare-Kare Burrito!
In this recipe, ForkSpoonManila uses Goldilocks’ Ready-To-Cook Kare-Kare Kit to make the burrito, which you can do, too, if you want to try it but don’t have any kare-kare at home. But don’t worry, the leftover meal you have in your fridge will work just as well. And since you can’t eat kare-kare without some bagoong on the side, this cool hack makes use of bagoong rice to add that extra salty flavor to each bite. Check out the recipe below!
What you’ll need:
- Goldilocks Ready-To-Cook Kare-Kare Kit or leftover kare-kare
- Bagoong Rice (cooked rice, bagoong, garlic, spring onion)
- Vegetables (string beans, egg plant, pechay or bok choy)
- Flour Tortilla Wraps
Blanch your string beans, eggplant, and pechay in a pot. If you’re using leftover kare-kare, you may omit this step and just make use of the cooked vegetables from there. Separate your veggies from the sauce for easier burrito assembly later on.
Make your bagoong rice by frying garlic, spring onion, and bagoong in oil. Add your rice once the mixture is fragrant, stir, and fry everything together until well combined.
Heat up your leftover kare-kare or the Goldilocks Ready-To-Cook Kare-Kare Kit as instructed.
Time to assemble! Lay your tortilla wrap on a flat surface and stack the bagoong rice, veggies, and kare-kare meat onto it in that order.
Roll everything up into a burrito and slice in half for easier eating and for IG-worthy presentation.
Serve and enjoy! You can keep an extra serving of kare-kare sauce on the side for dipping.
