Eat Your Compost

A Lens Into Kitchens Around The World, this feed is an exploration into how the feedfeed community is making the most of their veggie scraps and "compost".

A Note From Helena

Cake trimmings, stale rice, vegetable peels..what do these all have in common? They are normally discarded. In fact, almost a third of the world’s food is wasted. Much of this is preventable, and there are ways to reduce waste even in your own kitchen! Eat your Compost is a feed exploring the idea of what is edible, what is salvageable, and how can we make most of our food. Here you’ll find recipes for turning almost-gone jam jars into vinaigrettes, vegetable skins into soups, and turning herb stems into pesto! It’s about finding ways to use the whole ingredient and redefining what is considered waste. This feed will hopefully inspire you to get creative in the kitchen and start to think about food in new ways! So much is lost in trimmings and scraps, but so much is gained when you can turn these into full and satisfying meals!

Herb Roasted Tomatoes

You found some soft, wilted veggies in your fridge and you have no idea what to do with them. All I can say is don’t toss them out. A lot of times we #waste so much food because we simply have no idea what to do with them. I will teach you with a few simple and easy tips on how to rescue your soft veggies from last week. Today, I had some #organic Roma #tomatoes in my fridge which had gotten soft and mushy and I just rescued them for this evening’s dinner.

Detox Coriander Pesto! It literally takes 10 minutes & will happily keep in the fridge for a few weeks! Just cover it with a layer of oil if you plan to keep it for a while! It also freezes well! This really is a most effective and delicious way of detoxing the body, especially from heavy metals.

Pickled Vegetables

They say a watched kettle never boils, but please, please don't tell me a watched jar never pickles because I could stare at these beauties all day! Swiss chard stems leftover from last night's dinner are getting #spicy pickled today. These beauties are high in micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), phytochemicals (health ambassadors), and antioxidants (crime fighters against free radicals) so please? don't throw them away. Pickle them!
