Love food hate waste!

Every year our food waste fills Wembley Stadium 9 times over! Check out http://www.lovefoodhatewaste.com for tips on re-using leftovers and saving money. I first heard about this initiative at the ‘Sustainability Food Lancashire ‘ event at Edge Hill Uni – it has a great website.

Why not make a New Years resolution to waste less. I’ve made a delicious Courgette and Stilton soup with my leftovers:

Ingredients to serve 4:
4 leeks washed and chopped.
4 sticks of celery, washed and chopped.
3 courgettes washed and chopped.
800ml stock.
1tbsp Tamari soya sauce.
2 cloves garlic chopped.
50g Stilton cheese (any leftover cheese will do)
Salt and pepper to taste.

Directions:
Place all the ingredients, except the cheese, in a large saucepan (no oil needed).
Cover, bring to the boil and simmer gently for 15 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the cheese until melted. Cool a little, then blitz with a blender until smooth. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Top with home made croutons made with stale bread, olive oil and crushed garlic, baked in the oven.

Give it a try – Yum!
