Recycle waste in the kitchen


In kitchen they do not exist waste. Edible is not only the noble parts of foods. The potato has the pulp but also the skin and this is not a waste, as well as the stems of asparagus or those of mushrooms. Everything can be used and also with a great joy for our palate. Reset the waste in the kitchen it means saving at least 20% on spending.


How many of you love broth? Good right? Especially in the winter. How many of you prepare it with a ready-made nut? This is less good! Let's see together how to prepare good granular vegetable nut done exclusively with what many define waste.

Ingredients, 100% waste

  • carrot peels
  • celery leaves
  • basil, parsley
  • tomato peels
  • outer leaves and onion roots
  • peppers peels
  • coarse salt (half the weight of the vegetables used)
  • 1 clove of garlic

With less than a euro we can prepare a jar of granular vegetable nut. If you don't have enough waste, as you produce them, keep them in the freezer until you have enough. All peels and leaves should be washed and roughly chopped. The vegetables should be stewed with the aromatic herbs and salt. When all the liquid has evaporated from the pot and only the vegetable products remain, place them in the dryer or lay them well in the sun or in the oven. The vegetables must completely lose their moisture.

What do you think of a mushroom concentrate to add that delicious woody flavor to dishes? This too can be prepared using what many define waste. For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • the stems and waste parts of 500 grams of mushrooms

As for the broth, the mushrooms are stewed and the water evaporated. Also this time it will need a dryer or, alternatively, you can dry the stewed mushrooms in the sun for about 4 or 5 days or in the oven. Once dried, the mushrooms will be placed in the mixer until a powder is obtained. This will be your mushroom concentrate that you can add to tagliatelle, bread, focaccia and to enrich the flavor of any other dish.
