TOMORROW is Stop Food Waste Day. While the issue is at an all-time high, there are many ways to use up the food in our fridge.
I have got a couple of fun and easy recipes that will help.
Use up leftovers in your fridge with Batch Lady’s tasty puff tart recipe[/caption]
These are both delicious and will stop you from throwing away the odds and ends you have lying around in the back of your fridge.
The first recipe is my leftovers puff tart. It’s a great one to make use of all those little leftover bits of cheese and vegetables.
My second recipe is potato peel crisps, which are surprisingly delicious and the perfect snack to eat in front of the telly.
A great tip to reduce food waste is to buy frozen veg, because you only use what you need then pop the rest back into the freezer.
It also saves you time on chopping and peeling. Result.
