Root-to-leaf recipes: Delicious dishes from food scraps
If you’re looking for a simple way to trim your food costs and eat more produce, take another look at the fruits and vegetables you already have on hand. It’s likely easier than you realize to turn a pile of food scraps, ends, peels and cores into memorable meals.
So think beyond the broccoli florets. Consider the herb stems. Cook with a whole head of cauliflower. Use the apple cores and citrus peels one more time before composting. And taste the leafy tops of your favorite root vegetables. It’s almost like eating for free!
