Staying motivated to cook, and on top of that to reduce waste, has become difficult these days. By challenging yourself, we invite you to rekindle your zero waste flame and rediscover the benefits of saving your veggies!
As I came to grips with the problem of food waste, I started including more anti-waste actions in my everyday life until I could no longer remember how I used to do things before! I want to share the 5 most beneficial anti-waste tricks I’ve learned, which I plan to continue using forever.
Most of the time, fruits and veggies go bad for one of two main reasons. They either get mouldy or wilt. Here are a few tricks to try once you’ve figured out what went wrong with your last batch of fruits and veggies.
Try Frida’s dip variations to help you get more vegetable protein in your diet: traditional hummus, baba ganoush and roasted bell pepper spread. These classics are prepared by collecting pieces of vegetables from the fridge. All served with homemade onion flatbread – tender, warm, and just right for a cozy day at home… Mmm!
A common source of food waste derives from lack of ideas about how to cook the ingredients we already have. We buy food and after a few days it starts to rot, or we simply don’t enjoy it as much as imagined before. This recipe is meant to enjoy that “don’t know what to do with” tofu, and that kale left in the fridge, before it looks like a yellow shrub.
Autumn is just around the corner, and the change of colours makes me crave almost daily for my favourite fruits: tomatoes. This recipe is intended to rescue not very fresh tomatoes and transform them into a tasty pasta sauce. A fresh home-made pasta recipe is proposed but feel free to use as well regular bought pasta…Especially that forgotten portion still lying in the fridge!
