One of the biggest ways to reduce food waste is to utilise our leftovers in our fridges and refrigerators. Using these ingredients together can create some delicious dishes and reduce food waste at the same time.
The average UK household, with children, spends about £60 a month on food that is thrown away* – that's more than £700 a year.
With that in mind, we challenge you to try out our no food waste recipes to use up every inch of leftovers, from potato peel to the last few drops of milk in the carton.
Inspired by the UK’s most wasted foods, we have a delicious three-course meal for you to try out made out of some of the most wasted foods.
