Food Waste Broth

Written by Kajsa IngelssonJanuary 12, 2020

Food waste is a bad thing. In fact, if food waste was a country, it would be the country that’s the third largest emitter of greenhouse gas in the world. This food is also wasting as much fresh water as the annual flow of the Volga, the largest river in Europe.

We need to stop throwing away food. One easy way to start is to use your food scraps to make broth. It’s as easy as 1,2,3 and much healthier than store-bought versions that usually contains both gmo corn and yeast.

Food Waste Broth

  • 2 cups (5 dl) water
  • A bowl of whatever veggie food scraps you have saved from your last meals
  • Salt and pepper, to taste.

How to make it;

  • Place everything in a fitting pot.
  • Bring to a boil and reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Let it boil for 2-4 hours.
  • Strain, let it cool, pour into glass jars and keep in the fridge to use for cooking.
