    I like anything that is cooked with beets and their greens, so I would try all of the beet recipes.

  • MelMM  on  3/23/2017 at 8:06 PM

    So many from this book... overripe bananas and coffee grounds? I'm all ears. All the beet recipes, radish recipes.

  • IslandgirlOK  on  3/23/2017 at 9:04 PM

    Pumpkin flour ravioli with shaved chestnuts & roasted pumpkin seeds

  • Siegal  on  3/23/2017 at 9:06 PM

    Fennel pesto sounds yum

  • Nancith  on  3/23/2017 at 9:46 PM

    the Cauliflower core, leaves & Brie would be fantastic; I have always hated throwing all of that cauliflower in the compost.

  • sgump  on  3/23/2017 at 10:11 PM

    I'd try the carrot top pesto--I've never done anything productive with carrot tops and would love to try.

  • jr0717  on  3/23/2017 at 10:23 PM

    The cauliflower core cacao e pepe - even though the whole index looks tempting! This is how I cook anyhow, and the index is a trove of inspiration in itself!

  • maestra  on  3/23/2017 at 11:41 PM

    Several ideas on page 6 of the index made me want to start prepping and cooking right now. I would start with Coffee-grounds-and-salt-baked sunchokes (oh, I wish I could have thought of that!) and also put up a batch of chamomile whiskey for a an old-fashioned down the road. I've been wanting a reason to stop and pick some of this spring's fragrant chamomile flowers, which I would use instead of tea.

  • tangaloor  on  3/23/2017 at 11:43 PM

    Spruce needle marshmallows. Though spruce needles aren't the sort of thing I waste regularly.

  • AnnaZed  on  3/24/2017 at 1:44 AM

    I want to make Marinated beet tops & stems (page 20) from Scraps, Wilt & Weeds: Turning Wasted Food into Plenty by Mads Refslund and Tama Matsuoka Wong

  • southerncooker  on  3/24/2017 at 2:59 AM

    Apple tea sounds interesting.

    Pumpkin flour ravioli with shaved chestnuts & roasted pumpkin seeds

  • DFed  on  3/24/2017 at 11:23 AM

    It's the first recipe listed, but I love beet greens: Beet Top & Stem Salsa - it sounds interesting with the blueberries!

  • monique.potel  on  3/24/2017 at 11:32 AM

    i am really intrigued by the concept of using peels and adding a layer of flavor so i would try Pumpkin skin powder

  • nexttotheblues  on  3/24/2017 at 1:34 PM

    Roasted ugly garlic!

  • skipeterson  on  3/24/2017 at 3:11 PM

    Cabbage cores & leaves in broken-rice risotto. Love risotto, especially roasted cauliflower so this recipe might point to a way to use cauliflower cores and leaves.

  • lgroom  on  3/24/2017 at 5:38 PM

    I think beet tops are better than spinach or swiss chard. I love a platter of them. So any of the beet top recipes sound great to me.

  • gjelizabeth  on  3/24/2017 at 7:06 PM

    I'm not sure if I'd cook it first, but the first one I want to read is Carrot "Raisins".

    I like the beet top & stem salsa.

  • rstaudt  on  3/28/2017 at 6:16 PM

    It bothers me to throw away coffee grounds every morning when they still smell so wonderful, so my first choice(s) would definitely be the coffee grounds panna cotta or the coffee grounds ice cream.
