Ever heard of compleating?
Well it's a new concept the Love Food Hate Waste guys have come up with to encourage people to eat the whole of the product. For example cauliflower stalks, bread crusts, veg peelings etc. I am working with them to spread the message so have put together my top 10 tips for compleating plus a very unique recipe which I think might interest you guys.
I would love to hear your views on this and how you think we can get the younger generation to stop throwing perfectly good food away and start adopting a more creative way to cook and eat.

My mum (born 1913) grew up in a world without waste! She learned from her parents just watching how they lived. And she kept this attitude her whole life, telling her children. So we have always been aware not to throw away any food, to buy only what we can eat. As to me, I admit (during my professional life with quite a lot of stress) that we have not been able to do so! Telling our daughter that it’s with a bad conscious, however! Now, retired, back to the roots! To give an example to our grandchildren! Education starts in the families!
Thanks, Hari, for talking about and promoting this important subject!!!

@Hari Ghotra great article. I do a lot of those things, but not the pickling; that's a great idea and I'm going to start doing that! I think promoting homemade soups would work for the younger generation. as you said, making stock out of peelings etc., using leftover bits of veg... I keep 2 large ziplock bags in the freezer, one for veg scraps (lots of onion carrot peelings!) and one for chicken bones. when they're full they go in the pressure cooker for a quick stock. so much you can do with that!

Hi @Nadliow I would go with raw - you will get a paste once whizzed up that will melt into the masala and thicken too. Glad you enjoyed the read!

Btw will be making a Chicken Tikka Masala later this week and the olive seller at the market asked me if I wanted raw or grilled cashew nuts. Bought both as didn’t know - which would you use?

Hey there are some fabby ideas @Hari Ghotra - more tips to give to my customers at the market. I advice them to use carrot tops to make pesto, radish leaves with potatoes make a lovely soup, and have recently learned that potato peel makes a great “chimney sweep”. Love your ideas and will be trying them ASAP!
