We in America waste way too much food. I am striving to waste less. Going vegan and incorporating juicing into my diet, I have found that I waste a LOT less. Today I made a batch of vegan coleslaw. Of course I didn't have any cabbage on hand, LOL - but, staring at me from my produce drawer were two GIANT brocolli stocks. I had decided not to throw them in the compost a couple days ago when I made stirfry. I figured I would probably juice them, although brocolli juice isn't my fave. Instead, I was inspired to peel them (removing any dark spots from oxidization) and grate them on my box grater resulting in a pile of green goodness for a tasty slaw. Next, I threw in a pile of freshly shredded carrots and a heaping scoop of vegenaise. Lastly, I had half a jar of my pickled Cucumber Salad recipe in my fridge so I drained it and tossed it in as well. This pungent, sweet and spicy flavored unami side dish is sure to be a hit with tonight's supper. Waste Not, Want Not! Take those leftovers and make something magic up. Your wallet and your conscience will thank you!!
