The Peels, Seeds and Stalks.

Am I the only person who thinks vegetable waste is really beautiful? I love the mixtures of colours and textures that comes from the remains of your cooking; the bits you would throw in the bin or compost.

  1. I’ve always thought this! especially after making fruit salad =)

  2. No,no,no! You are not the only one! I was doing something very similar recently ( but only had red onion and tomatoes). So cool, isn’t it? I tried to stay away, but couldn’t – it’s just too beautiful.
    You took a great picture and it is of a very good quality.

  3. This reminds me of something my sister said after we cooked chicken tinola (a kind of chicken stew with green papaya, chili leaves, and other aromatics): ‘I feel for those vegetables (the aromatics). After they’ve served their purpose, after we take their essence, we throw them away like common trash.’
    She looked so serious saying it, too, that we all had a good laugh. 🙂

  4. This is serious art! Aromatic, colourful and beautiful. Wouldn’t it be great if somebody came up with an idea to reuse it somehow? : )

  5. Couldnt agree more! I always find it sad throwing these bits out.
    Apparently if you cut the stalks of corriander plants and store them in a jar of water they grow roots you can eventually plant! So hang on to those if you ever fancy growing your own herb garden 🙂
