Lentil Soup from Scraps

Lentil soup from scraps

I spent some time in the kitchen photo studio and cooked a lentil soup made from scraps. This is not so extraordinary… until you learn that reducing food waste is the #3 recommended solution to reversing carbon emissions. This is according to Project Drawdown, which is a comprehensive plan to reverse global warming.

The soup was inspired by some left over coconut milk we had in our fridge from last night’s dinner, and a half lemon I had placed in the “eat me first” bin in our fridge.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to blog more about my efforts to reduce food waste in our kitchen.
