Root to Stem
LEAVING NOTHING TO WASTE
Using the whole vegetable or fruit.
Taking pointers from the Nose to Tail movement in meat, Root to Stem is movement that champions the use of the entire vegetable; carrot tops, cauliflower leaves; onion skins; potato peelings – every single scrap!
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.
Creating something in unexpected ways
– Whizzing hard kale stems into a nice pesto
– Pickling root stems
– Simmering up some hearty stocks, soups and stews
