When you have leftover wine, but don’t want to waste it, there are options to create something fun out of it. The two main things you can do with leftover wine is either cook with it or use it for household tasks. Just remember one key rule: if you wouldn’t drink it eventually, then don’t cook with it. When you decide to make something delicious out of your old wine, try some yummy recipes like ‘Vegan Scallops in White Wine Cream Sauce.’ 1/3 a cup of wine is needed for this recipe. Use a third of a cup of wine, along with coconut milk; this mix offers a healthy dose of infection-fighting lauric acid. It will form a very silky sauce that envelops the oyster mushrooms standing in for scallops. Any leftover dry wine will do, but robust Chardonnays definitely work best for this dish.
Make a delicious dish with ‘Poached Eggs in a Red Wine Sauce.’ 2 cups of wine are needed for this dish. You’ll be able to elevate the simple egg into an exquisite dish surrounded by a rich wine sauce. Use a hefty serving of red whisked into a mixture of vegetables, herbs, and bacon (if you want to add meat). Serve this with garlic bread to help sop up all of the yolky goodness. For an interesting mushroom dish, try a ‘White Wine Mushroom Bruschetta With Halloumi.’ ½ a cup of wine is needed for this. Stir in the wine into a sauté of vitamin D-filled mushrooms, and spoon over baguette pieces topped with halloumi cheese. This is truly the ideal appetizer. If you enjoy a bit of lemon, try ‘Lemon Pepper Wine-Braised Baby Broccoli.’ ½ a cup of wine is used for this recipe. Use two tablespoons of melted Earth Balance to give the dish a crunchy, buttery breadcrumb topping. There is always time to experiment with leftover wine; use your wisely today for a fun treat at the end of your day.
