Turn your leftover veggies into a tasty Christmas fry-up.

Morning-after homefries

If you've ever had breakfast in an American diner you'll know that home fries are pretty hard to beat. These ones use up any leftover veg from Christmas dinner and are ready in 10 minutes. Don't get hung up on how much of each vegetable to use - the below is just a guide - use whatever you have left over.

Serves 4-6.

Gluten-free and vegan


1 white onion

2 tbsps of olive oil

300g leftover roast potatoes

200g leftover Brussels sprouts

200g leftover carrots

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp smoked paprika


1. Slice the onions. Add the olive oil to a large pan on medium heat. Add the onions and cook for a few minutes until starting to soften.

Step 1: Fry onions and spices

2. While they're cooking, roughly chop all of the veg into chunks - I do this really roughly, with pieces of all different sizes.

Step 2: Roughly chop veg

3. Add the garlic powder and paprika to the pan with the onions and toss well.

Step 3: Fry veg

4. Add all of the veg and toss. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until heated through and starting to crisp.

Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Speaking of delicious breakfast dishes, I had to mention my favourite place to go for brunch in Dublin - Meet Me In The Morning on Pleasants Street ( The menu is heaven and changes all the time. I usually get whatever the vegan option is and it's always so creative. As I write, it's "warm short grain brown rice, pickles, garlicky kale, sesame and chilli crunch and sauerkraut" - basically the dream. The coffee is always superb as is my go-to homemade nut butter on toasted sourdough. They get extra brownie points for being dog-friendly.
