The Best Food Save And Worst

I want to focus this post on the best food save I have made lately. To balance it out I’ll also share the worst food save I ever made.

My Friday fridge is over on Facebook today Guys.

Food Waste Friday is here to make us all mindful of what we throw away that could indeed be put to use. To discard food just because there is a lack of inspiration as to what to do with it shouldn’t be the case.

There’s a way to save everything.

Take last Friday, for example, I had some sweet potatoes in my cupboard with no determined destination.

The answer – soup.

Best Food Save - Soup

5 ingredients. Sweet potato, onion, curry paste, coconut milk and stock. In fact it could have been made with just 4 – the coconut milk could have been left out no problem. It’s all about thinking outside of the recipe. Very often less is more. Life isn’t meant to be complicated, and I do not believe meals should be either.

This recipe is uncomplicated and an example of the best food save I have ever made. In fact most of the soup recipes I whip up with potential food waste are always the a best food save.

But I don’t always get it right. Does anyone remember my celery gratin? It was grim, and never repeated.

Fortunately I get it right more often than wrong. Do you?

Do you have any perfect food waste save dishes to share? Ideas for a best food save? Is there a recipe or dish you always fall back on?

I have more sweet potatoes to use up this week, and I will be doing the same as last week as without a doubt I’m crowning it my best food save to date. Even the Hubby agrees.

    Sweet potatoes make awesome chips too. Cut them into rounds,then cut the round into lengthwise pieces, toss in a bit of oil, bake in the oven and 20 minutes later – ta da! I love sweet potatoes, but, especially in the heat of summer (it’s so hot right now, it was 30C in my house when we got home this afternoon 🙁 ) they turn into waste very quickly! Your soup looks delish 🙂

      Great suggestion Clare – they are good roasted. I’ve frilled them also on my Foreman grill – hope you Guys are all good?

    Agree, soups are perfect as food saves. I tend to use any roast meat leftovers for making broth for soup & whatever veggies need to be eaten.
