Waste not, Want not

We’ve all heard that said before or said it ourselves. They are very good (and simple) rules to live by. I love sharing ways with you all to use what you have and to try not to throw away food if you don’t have to. Like how to regrow foods with scraps, making the best oat bars from the bottom of the jar of jelly, and so many leftover makeover ideas.

I’ve got another tip/recipe that will help you eliminate waste for you today…

Carrot Green Chimichurri 

This is my favorite carrot green recipe!

Yes, chimichurri sauce made from the green carrot leaves that many of us discard. Don’t throw them away! There is so much flavor in those carrot leaves. It really does make the best chimichurri too – so good, in fact, that I can (and have) eaten it with a spoon.

What do you use the Carrot Top Chimichurri for?

Well, I have already admitted to eating it with a spoon (sorry, not sorry) – but I also use this in a variety of ways. First off, anything you would normally put chimichurri on, this would be fantastic on as well. Use it just as you’d use it made another way.

My personal favorites are these:

  • Chimichurri Chicken Wings
  • Mix it into cooked rice
  • Glaze meat or vegetables with it
  • it’s AMAZING on roasted carrots
  • Serve it along with steak
  • Put it on tacos!
  • Potatoes!!!! (so good…)
  • Get creative!
