The other night for dinner, I wanted to use up the leftover chicken I had made.
I also had some cheese that I wanted to use up too, so I thought baking it with some veggies and a little pasta would be a good way.
I was feeling a bit lazy and didn't want to grease any pans to bake everything in, so I decided to make individual origami boxes out of parchment paper.
If you'd like to try, take a 20 cm (7.8 inches) x 30 cm (11 inches) piece of parchment and follow these directions here.
I sautéed some spinach, red bell pepper, onion and maitake in some olive oil.
I also made a béchamel sauce using this recipe and used soy milk in place of the milk.
The cheese didn't brown up as I had envisioned, but it was a delicious way to use up some leftovers and clean-up was a snap.
If you do use the parchment origami boxes to bake in, do not place them directly onto the rack, instead use a metal tray.
