I love the “anti-gaspy” kitchen. Besides avoiding throwing away consumable products and therefore saving money, I think it’s a great playground and creativity! Anti-waste cooking is not only synonymous with “cooking leftovers” to give them a second life, but it is also an opportunity to have fun with the parts of vegetables that we often overlook! From the peel to the stalk, be it the root or the leaves…after all everything is good in a vegetable! And in between leaf recycling, I love coming up with new ideas for radish tops!

When you buy a bunch of radishes, you often throw away the leaves, also known as the “tops.” In fact, often clay-like, a bit rough, they are not the most appetizing! And yet… their slightly spicy, tangy and slightly herbaceous flavor allows you to make a variety of dishes.

I love making pesto with radish tops or radish top butter, for example, as a starter with a salad of radishes and carrots, or even to replace the simple slices of butter that we eat with radishes. eat together I also recommend the radish leaf soup! Soup, the excellent anti-waste dish, here with just a few ingredients makes it possible to make a delicious Veloute… economical and delicious!
