It happens to all of us. We buy our groceries in bulk to avoid going back and forth to the supermarket and wind up with some foods that end up rotting before we get around to eating them. Or you cook a particular meal and find yourself left with a couple of random ingredients, such as half an onion. It’s a common occurrence, one that’s partially to blame for the whopping 133 billion pounds of food that wind up becoming waste each year in the US, which leads to a massive amount of unneeded emissions. The thing is, there’s no need to toss whatever bits of leftover food you have in the kitchen. Many delicious, satisfying dishes can be made using the tools you already have in the fridge.
