Cook Your Way to Sustainability

March 31, 2023 9:28 am

Most of us may not realize how much food we waste and throw away every day.  Being unaware of our leftovers, spoiled produce, thrown parts of fruits and vegetables that could be eaten or repurposed are little acts that add up to our growing problem with climate change. Ano nga ba ang pwede nating gawin? We happen to have one perfect example for you.

Love your French fries? But have you heard of poutine? It’s a famous Canadian dish French fries with gravy and cheese. If that sounds delicious to you, how about exploring a delicious and at the same time nutritious poutine by making this Vegetable Poutine recipe! This dish will surely make you love your veggies thanks to CRISPY FRY® Gravy Mix! It has the perfect blend of saltiness, savoriness, and spices. With its thick consistency, it will make you want more.

In preparing the vegetables, try not to peel their skin to help reduce food waste. Just make sure to scrub the vegetables with a clean brush. This helps remove the dirt and soil from the skin. Plus, the skin usually contains most of the nutrients of the vegetables.

For this recipe, we will use sweet potatoes, string beans, and carrots which all contain good amount of beta-carotene that helps our eyes to adjust in dim conditions and Dietary Fiber that helps prevent constipation. Slice these vegetables into sticks then deep-fry until golden and crispy.

Prepare the CRISPY FRY® Gravy Mix 20g by mixing it with a cup water in a pan, then heat it up to a boil. Once it starts to boil and thicken, pour the gravy into the fried vegetables then top with parmesan cheese. Serve and enjoy while hot!

We can follow the same idea with other recipes. Let’s not be afraid to explore and keep in mind to be part of the solution mga Ka-Cookmunity! Preventing food from going to waste is one of the easiest and most powerful actions we can take to save money and lower our climate change footprint by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and conserving natural resources.
