The best food is free food, and some vegetables have the ability to keep on giving after they have been used. Jaime Brockway at Food52 recommends four veggies you can continuously regrow with just a bowl or glass filled partly with water and some sunshine:
- Romaine lettuce: Save 3 inches of the butt of the lettuce and place it in a vessel that will allow water to cover the bottom half. Place in a sunny window.
- Spring onions: Use a clear container that lets the spring onions lean without falling over. Fill with water make sure it gets lots of sun.
- Fennel: Cover the bottom half of the bulb with water in its container and place it on a windowsill.
- Carrot Greens: Save the tops of carrots and place them in a shallow dish of water. Place in a sunny spot.
Depending on how many plants and vessels you have, you could potentially regrow most of a meal every week with hardly any effort. To learn more about the process, see what you can make with these veggies and what other vegetables can be regrown just as easily, check out the link below.
