Today’s prompt – Leader of a country, place or group
I chose Kerry McCarthy who is an MP in Bristol. She was the first vegan MP and has managed to convert a couple more in the British parliament. I recently heard Kerry speak at the Vegan Camp Out which I wrote about here and have been an admirer of her for a while.
Kerry has been involved in work to do with food waste so I decided to use this to inspire this dish.
Bagged salad is the most thrown away food from British homes with 178m bags being thrown away according to Wrap.
One thing that some people aren’t aware of is that salad is great cooked too! I served lettuce cooked with spring onions and peas along with roasted new potatoes and Burmese tofu (made with chickpea flour using this recipe).
How do you reduce waste in your kitchen? Let me know in the comments below.
