The way we produce and consume food gravely affects the planet that we live on. Reduce the impact of the food you eat by being more mindful of adapting to a more sustainable diet. This doesn't mean that you should go completely vegan or plant-based, but simply being conscious of your food choices - where to shop, what to shop, better alternatives, and reducing food waste is a good start.
In honor of Earth Month, the SideChef personalities came up with their take on fun, sustainable, and zero waste recipes using edible insects, banana peel, and sustainably sourced seafood. So eat deliciously and protect the planet with these recipes that benefit the earth.
The grand goal of this recipe is to be sustainable, tasty and introduce edible upcycling and edible insects in a comfortable and delicious way. Edible upcycling entails taking something that might be going to waste (leftover rice). This savory granola is the perfect snack, salad or soup topping, side to creamy cheese, or any way else you want to serve it.
This recipe only uses the peels of the banana, which makes it a great way to use up peels after making banana bread, banana pancakes, or smoothies.
For a sustainable choice, try experimenting with mollusks or sustainably caught fish.
