Save your Scraps

Don’t throw those cheese scraps and carrot tops away! Saving your food scraps can help make you a greener cook and make your homemade dishes even tastier. Parmesan rinds can be added to stews to help provide a savoury umami flavour. Vegetable greens can be whizzed up with some olive oil and a handful of nuts to make a tasty pesto. Stale bread can be used in salads like Panzanella or added to soup to help bulk it out. If you really have to throw that food away, think about getting a compost box so you can use them as fertiliser for your garden.
