No Waste Cooking
No more wasting! The carbon footprint left by wasted food is astonishing. Statistics show that over 25% of food globally produced goes uneaten.
Here are some steps you can take to be more mindful.
- Look at what you're tossing out. This will give you an idea of what you're over-buying. Shop small. Buying in bulk may seem cost efficient, but produce and meat go bad quickly.
- Make use of all that you're buying. Parts you are tossing out can be great additions to your everyday meal. Saute mushroom stems and spread on slices of toast for a simple crostini.
- Use leftover herb stems and unused bones to make a stock.
- Not eating the whole vegetable? Pickle the rest. Broccoli and celery stems are delicious pickled and add brightness to any dish.
