What do you do with the leftover vegetables in your fridge ?

Asked by pussinboots (213 points ) March 13th, 2012

I generally make a stew but having discovered a new use Monday tea time will never be the same.

Now there’s an activity for a rainy afternoon with kids who are going stir crazy!

I make soup. I love the “Play with Your Food” calendars, but don’t have the talent to create with cut vegetables. (I tried.) Leftover salad goes in the soup, too.

Sauté onion and garlic in some EVOO. Then make soup.

Roast them with a nice chicken, a little garlic and rosemary.

I throw mine in a centrifuge and extract precious metals.

We rarely have leftover veggies. I buy what I need. Make fresh juice or meals with the veg. Also, we have small and medium size animals that eat veggies daily.

Edit: If my Sheltie was in the room, I wouldn’t be able to make an instrument, as he’d be stealing the veggies from me ;)

That’s interesting and fun! Every once and a while I’ll run into a moldy little one, then I’ll donate it to the soil.

@whitecarnations oooooh donations are always good. The soil thanks you.

Place them in a wheelbarrow in the garden & make like i’m having a chat with Stephen Hawking.

I am going to try to make a flute out a zucchini. If it doesn’t work I will bake it with parmasian cheese!

Wow, now even instruments have gone organic! It was so funny in the video watching the brother in the background eating the bits he carved out, lol. Nothing is wasted! I think you need very fresh vegetables for the orchestra though. I don’t think a moldy rutabaga would do.
