Compleating means that you eat all the edible parts of fruits and vegetables, but this book goes one step further and gives you amazing ideas for zero-waste too. Now you can feel good about the food you’re eating and find creative and innovative ways to use the parts you can’t. Transform banana skins into pulled "pork"; make amazing vegan butter from the liquid in a can of chickpeas; give new life to leftover wine by making your own vinegar. The book comes with a helpful key for which parts of the potentially wasted produce can be used for additional purposes: peel, stalk, core etc. There are also household options like making dyes. By drawing on recipes from wartime Britain as well as modern favourites, this book is a brilliant way to relearn how to cook this way without sacrificing taste or time.
