Food Waste in America is a huge problem. When so many people in our country (and world) go hungry, this makes me feel sad and incredibly guilty. Even though I try very hard not to waste food, it still happens. Despite my best efforts, produce still gets lost and forgotten in the bottom of the bin. I try to do things like save scraps in the freezer for soup stock, buy only the produce I think I will use, and roast a tray of vegetables to use up ones that are a bit past their prime. Sometimes, this isn’t enough. Today I went into my fridge and found slimy cilantro, squishy zucchini, and onions that were sprouting greens. There was nothing I could do for the cilantro and zucchini, but the onions were salvageable and salvageable in the best way possible – CARAMELIZED ONIONS!
