Whether a recipe calls for peel-free vegetables or you simply don’t like eating them, veggie peels are one of those waste products that are inevitably created no matter how hard you try to curb your waste.
These peels are often tossed in the landfill or composted, meaning the ability of them to be turned into scrumptious creations that avert food waste and save money is often overlooked.
The most common way for veggie peels to be reused is in creating veggie broth, but they can also be used to create a cheap, delicious alternative to traditional crisps.
All you have to do is collect your veggie peels, season them with olive oil and a spice blend of your choice, and then pop them in the oven. You will then have a delicious batch of crisps that your eco-conscious heart can feel good about eating.
