Eat your compost

Apr 04, 2016 | written by:

Have you ever thought about how much food ends up every day in the wet waste? In addition to the scraps and food gone bad, indeed, the household garbage is full of peelings, leaves, stems and cores that could be used to prepare simple and tasty recipes.

Cooking with organic waste is an idea that, for some time, has a certain resonance in the gastronomic blogs, in the cookbooks and even in homes, and the reasons are to be found in the growing attention to eco-sustainability. So, browsing on the net I came across the website of a young passionate about cooking, Julie Resnick, co-founder of feedfeed, a global community of people that love cooking and sharing thoughts, suggestions and recipes on social media with the hashtag #feedfeed to reduce the environmental impact in the kitchen.

You never throw anything away: fruits and vegetables can be used literally 'from root to stem', nothing excluded. How? The recipes are many, all different and divided into categories. Orange and apple peel tea is undoubtedly my favorite one and the ingredients are 6 apple peels and cores, 5 cups water, juice of one large orange and one cinnamon stick.

For preparation is enough putting all the ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, let it simmer for about 15 minutes, strain through a sieve and serve. If you want to learn other eco-friendly recipes you just have to go on feedfeed site and choose the one you like the best.
