Preventing food waste one recipe at a time.
The No Waste Food Challenge is a food blogging challenge designed to get us sharing the clever and creative ways we’ve prevented food waste by turning something which otherwise might have ended up in the landfill into something incredibly delicious and moreish!
If you would like to link up your recipe you can find the details over on the official No Waste Food Challenge page.
In the meantime, here are 34 fantastic recipes from food bloggers all around the world! This is the February and March round up as I started a part time job in the village back in February and have become frightfully behind in my blogging! My sincerest apologies for taking so long to get this up, but nonetheless, it’s up!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, they say. Why not jazz things up instead of having plain old boring cereal with milk!
