What do you do with all your leftover scraps once you are done cooking? It’s simple, you can re-grow them!
Yup, one more reason why nature is so generous. Used up veggies can be grown again. And again. And again. Free food anyone?
I read up on the subject and liked this post in particular in which you will see all the steps explained clearly with photos of every stage of this beautiful process!
What does it consist of? You just take your scraps, keep them in a little jar of water. Then the magic happens and shoots come up. IT’S ALIIIIVE. Once the plant looks ready, you can plant it in soil, and watch it grow, cutting what you need whenever you need it, and it will grow back.
You can do this with onions, garlic, lettuce, celery, carrots… basically any vegetable that has a solid base or core.
I tried this fun eco-friendly experiment with my bok choy.
About a week later, the shoots are very visible and thriving!
I decided to give them a new home in one of our old pans. Double re-cycling 🙂
I’m looking forward to see how this goes. I’m sure it will give me an endless supply of bok choy. I can very well imagine myself bragging about not having to buy any!
