Turn Vegetable Peels Into A Crunchy Snack Instead Of Binning Them

Turn Vegetable Peels Into a Crunchy Snack Instead of Trashing Them

Vegetables scraps can be reused in a bunch of ways, like an easy veggie stock or crispy chips. Next time you peel root vegetables, bake them into a delicious snack instead of throwing them in the trash.

You can use the nutrient packed peels from carrots, parsnips and potatoes for best results. Simply toss your vegetable peels with oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet and pop them in a 200 degree oven for 6-10 minutes. Keep an eye on the peels since they're fairly thin and might burn easily.

You can bake your peels into crunchy chips to snack on, as a side instead of french fries, or to use as a crispy topping for casseroles and soups. The best thing about this easy dish is that you can add whatever spices you want to change things up for each batch.

      Here I was wondering why my oven started glowing and my cat melted from sitting in front of it.

    Even better, don't peel your vegetables at all. The skin is good for you and it reduces waste as well as saves time preparing. If your child/significant other/self is afraid of how peel looks, tell them they are weak.
    Potatoes taste better with skin on especially, I mash them that way too.
