Inevitably when we are cooking with plants, we end up with a pile of tops and bottoms, herb stems, roots, stalks, skins, and other miscellaneous parts. Rather than throwing these bits away, keep them in a bag in your freezer. Once your veggie scrap bag is filled up, use this recipe to turn those miscellaneous discards into a delicious homemade vegetable broth.
With a veggie scrap bag, you’ll always have the ingredients on hand to make a delicious vegetable. Whether you sip it by itself during the cold winter months or add it to soups and sauces, this is a fabulous way to reduce food waste (with the bonus of a nutrient boost!). Learn additional ways to decrease food waste, to help keep our air, water, and earth clean, and save money by reading, 10 Food Tips You Haven’t Heard for Reducing Food Waste, and 5 More Ways to Reduce Food Waste.
