We bet you eat and cook with carrots, but how about carrot tops? And what do you do with strawberry stems, fennel fronds, or broccoli stalks? We have 16 recipes for you that maximize all parts of your ingredients. Zero waste, tons of fun and flavor.
Air Fryer Broccoli Fries
Don’t throw out your broccoli stalks! Turn leftover broccoli stems into fries instead. These delicious broccoli fries are coated in panko and seasonings for crunch. Cooking the broccoli in an air fryer makes these fries crispy, with barely any oil. (Vegan, Gluten Free option). Get the recipe for Air Fryer Broccoli Fries.
Chard Stalk Hummus
Chard Stalk Hummus is a traditional Lebanese dish that resembles baba ghanoush in flavor and texture. This recipe uses chard stalks instead of chickpeas to make a rustic dip for raw vegetables and pita. You end up with a lighter texture, but all the same flavors as traditional hummus. You can even change the color of the hummus by using different colored Swiss chard stalks. Get the recipe for Chard Stalk Hummus.
Vegan Kale Stem Pesto

Strawberry Stem-Infused Water
Much like my other flavored waters from back in the day, this infused water was lightly flavored and nicely refreshing. And I felt super frugal too.
