-Recently read about carrot-green chimichurri. Good to see that overlooked parts of veggies that usually go into the compost are getting a bit of limelight. Beet greens are pretty common now, for example.



Thanks for this!  I was just yesterday looking at my maturing crop of carrots and thinking that I needed to query the interwebs for things to do with those lovely organic carrot greens.  This will be one of them!

Make your own PIZZA!  There are a lot of 5 minute yeastless doughs you can make.  A large cheese pizza is a couple of dollars. We'll usually add any leftovers or veggies we have in the fridge.

I just came across these great (and FREE!) cookbooks and wanted to share. They're beginner-friendly and she's priced out the cost per serving: http://www.leannebrown.ca/cookbooks/

So many.  My newest favorite is called Maqluba.  It's is a Palestinian chicken and rice dish that I saw on Parts Unknown, and went looking for the recipe.  The best recipe I've found is here:

Just ignore the ethnic/religious comments following the recipe.

The Baharat spice mix is important, you can find a good recipe for that here:

If you buy a whole chicken and cut it up yourself, and skip the pine nuts, you get a huge delicious pot of food with tons of leftovers for about $10.
