Cart savings depend not only on finding the best prices on the market, but also on making the most of everything you buy and trying to throw away as little as possible. For example, we can use parts of vegetables that we do not usually use (here we explain it to you), or give a second life to stale bread. You should know that there are many more recipes besides French toast, so you won’t have to give up on the latter, such as garlic or thyme soup, and pudding. We explain some:

homemade panko


Japanese style breadcrumbs

Although we recommend that you use sliced ​​bread in this recipe, these breadcrumbs can also be made with what you have left over from days gone by and have already hardened. Basically, it’s about chopping it up and toasting it a bit in the oven.




Another classic use of stale bread is migas, a dish as simple as it is delicious, with many versions throughout the country: Andalusian, La Mancha, Extremadura, Aragonese… Perhaps its only drawback is that this traditional dish is quite high-calorie.




Salmorejo is another recipe that can help us give stale bread a second life. Its content in typical vegetables from the Spanish garden makes it healthy and full-bodied, as well as very refreshing.
