Different veggie scraps that ought to not find yourself within the bin, but commonly do: kale or silverbeet stalks, beetroot tops, carrot tops, coriander roots, broccoli or cauliflower stalks, coriander and parsley stalks. Dudes, that is edible cash going into the bin. So let’s learn to flip these odd bits and items into tasty trimmings! Starting with celery leaf pesto.

This pesto is yum. Sure, not so good as basil pesto, true, however yum in its personal proper. It’s lovely in cheese or roast veggie sandwiches, in pasta or to stuff bread with. Critically, I unapologetically binged on pull aside stuffed rye sourdough after I made this pesto.
