#SustainableXmas Turkey & Sage Arancini
#SustainableXmas: Wonky Veg. Don’t dispose of those carrots you got that look like they’ve got legs, or the potato that’s got an abnormal looking lump growing out of it. Each year, vegetables that don’t quite stand up against the standards of beauty that supermarkets are setting get thrown away and completely wasted. However, they taste exactly the same as the beautiful veg you’ll find in aisle 2 and you won’t be able to tell the different when chopped up anyway. Remember, it’s on the inside that counts…
Here we have an absolutely mouth-watering recipe you can use your imperfect parsnips in. Create some Christmassy canapes for your parties or for starters on the big day and impress your guests.
