Unfortunately, up to 30% of carrots don’t make it to the grocery store because of physical or aesthetic defects. By choosing imperfect vegetables from store shelves, you can help reduce food waste.
Wash instead of peal! It saves you time. Carrot stems, leaves and peels are all good for you – and by eating them reduces your food waste.
Carrot leaves and stems can be used in salads, as garnish or for a tasty carrot top pesto.
Unpeeled carrots are delicious roasted, steamed, boiled, juiced or simply just eaten raw.
If you do peel your carrots, how about using the peel to make carrot chips or pesto, or adding them to smoothies or stir fries?
