Crispy potato peels with carrot top macadamia pesto & Black Betty Bam

With the current challenges we face such as rising food costs and food security, the war on waste has never been more urgent. Times have changed from the days when feasting and the quest for exotic ingredients were highly sought after. These days people are becoming increasingly concerned with how our food is grown, where it comes from and what they can to do contribute to the local economy, ecology and the environment.

So here are a few ways to reduce waste and enhance flavour everyday. I’ve added a dose of my Black Betty Bam, my plant-based umami spread, in lieu of traditional Parmesan. You can buy it here.
