Mission Food Malaysia With Sarah Benjamin

To mark this year’s World Food Day on 16th October 2018, Mission Foods Malaysia has joined forces with the lovely Sarah Benjamin to kick off a “Foldover Your Leftovers” campaign. The campaign revisits the old adage “Waste Not Want Not” and aims to inspire people with nifty ideas on how to turn leftovers into brand new delicious meals.


Sarah, previously seen cooking up a storm on the Asian Food Channel, will lead the campaign by Mission Foods Malaysia by sharing recipes and ideas through social media, PSAs and even a recipe booklet which will be available in stores with the purchase of Mission products.

Randall Tan - Brand Manager for Mission Foods South Asia

“Ending hunger should begin with each of us. Through this campaign, we wanted to show how simple it is to reuse everyday leftovers by using our products. Reusing leftovers is the easiest thing to do to jump in on this cause and in the long run save each household a lot of money,” said Randall Tan, Brand Manager for Mission Foods South Asia.

Satay and Peanuts Humus Pita with Mission Foods Wholemeal Pita

Here she shows us how we can use leftovers Satay and its condiments to create the delicious Satay and Peanuts Humus Pita with Mission Foods Wholemeal Pita. With this, we would be able to achieve a #ZeroWaste lifestyle.

To reuse leftover satay, Sarah first created a brilliant peanut hummus by blending the peanut sauce with canned chickpeas, taking it a notch up with added flavours. The hummus was used to line the pita pocket before the satay pieces were added in and made complete with a topping of cucumber herb salad, garnished with pickled onion.

Sezchuan Spiced Chicken Wrap With Mission Onion and Chives Supersoft Wrap

This is followed by the Sezchuan Spiced Chicken Wrap, which uses the leftovers of Hainanese Chicken rice and its leftovers condiments using the Mission Onion and Chives Supersoft Wrap to turn it into an interesting and healthy meal.

Chicken Curry Foldover with Mission Food Supersoft 6 Grain Wrap

For the last dish, Sarah showed how a simple curry can be made into a tasty Chicken Curry Foldover with Mission Food Supersoft 6 Grain Wrap. To make this, Sarah uses the leftover curried chicken and potatoes and sautรฉed with summer vegetables such as zucchini and corn kernels and fresh herbs for that extra zing. This was used as the filling for a foldover which is then topped with oozy mozzarella cheese.

Celebrity Chef Sarah Benjamin Asian Food Channel

Starting from November 2018, Sarah has produced 12 exciting recipes from leftovers that will be available in a limited edition booklet which will be given away complimentary to shoppers for every two Mission products purchased at all participating stores, so, hurry up to get your latest copy of this creative recipe using leftovers.
