Turn leftovers into an easy sauce for protein or salad dressing

Clearly, vegetable sauces are king, and also work to help you use up leftover cooked vegetables. “You can easily blend leftover veggies with some extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil, add in some salt, pepper, or spices and a little bit of nutritional yeast or [vegan] Parmesan and you’ve got a sauce that’s great for protein or pasta,” says Serena Poon, celebrity chef and founder of Just Add Water.
