Waste less in the home

Approximately 7.3 million tonnes of food is wasted in consumer homes in the UK each year a lot of which could be avoided if we knew better how to cook with whatever we had in our fridges; stale bread, mushy avocado and all. Here's we'll provide a collection of recipes you can use to take ingredients you might think are past their best and turn them into meals so delicious you'll be shocked you ever thought about throwing them away..

Key to this is that these recipes are quick and simple. As much as we all love the elaborate and impressive food videos on social media we at The Food Waste Doctor believe that we could reduce a lot of waste by making cooking with what we have easier. This is why we aim to keep all our recipes to below 30 minutes.
