Time to change

What we think of as waste

The parts of vegetables we normally throw away are laden with nutrients; potato peelings, for example, are packed with Vitamin C, fibre and iron. There is no good reason to discard these parts if we can use them.

Being inventive

Creating something in unexpected ways

– Whizzing hard kale stems into a nice pesto

– Pickling root stems

– Simmering up some hearty stocks, soups and stews
