To fight against waste in the kitchen, Carrie Solomon just unveiled a new book named Do not throw any more published by Éditions de La Martinière. With a total of 60 clever recipes, she provides simple keys to intelligently using leftovers and developing an array of good, affordable and mainly vegetarian dishes. Including this Dhal with vegetables and coconut milk.
The Dhal recipe made with the leftovers from the vegetable drawer and coconut milk
To note: "No need to peel the skin of the butternut, it will soften when cooked and is quite edible! Feel free to serve the dhal with rice or zaatar pancake chips."

If you have any coconut milk left over, you can freeze it in an ice cube tray. And if you have any dhal left, consider using it to stuff empanadas.
