Best out of Waste Contest by Skindulgence

Enter this contest by Skindulgence Body Case and win hampers of premium, handmade soaps.

All of us try not to waste food by reusing leftovers, though some of us are really good at it. Show off your talent by sharing your creations in this contest by Skindulgence Body Care.

The Contest

Food waste is food that is discarded or lost uneaten.

Over 1/3rd of all food produced globally is wasted. As area larger than China is used to grow food that is never eaten. In most developed countries over half of all food waste takes place in the home. ( However this is a modern phenomena. Our ancestors knew more about the sustainable use of resources than we do.

We can bring about a big change by making small changes in our kitchens. I remember my grandmother would make delicious curries out of vegetable peels. She would teach me how to peel the matar ke chilke to make a dish.
We can use vegetable scraps to make vegetable stock. Citrus peels can be dried, powdered and used in cakes. Leftover bread can be made into croutons. Stale bread can be used to thicken soups.

So show us your creativity by using any food waste or leftover to make delicious food.
