Trash cooking ideas

In modern cooking, sustainability and creativity come together under the fascinating practice of "trash cooking," a trend that invites you to look differently at ingredients you would normally discard. Today, we bring you a recipe that is not only a delight for the palate but also a way to contribute to the care of the planet, using Spanish extra virgin olive oil to enhance the flavors of what some would consider "waste." Get ready to transform food leftovers into an unforgettable gastronomic experience.

Step by Step


  1. Start by thoroughly cleaning the potato skins, broccoli stems, and cauliflower leaves.
  2. Cut the stale bread into small cubes. This will be the base of our dish, where each element will contribute texture and flavor.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the extra virgin olive oil from Spain and add the cubes of stale bread. Toast until they are golden and crispy, then remove and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add a little more Spanish extra virgin olive oil if necessary and sauté the finely chopped garlic cloves until fragrant.
  5. Incorporate the potato skins, broccoli stems, and cauliflower leaves, sautéing until they are tender and slightly golden.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Return the toasted bread cubes to the skillet with the vegetables, mixing well to integrate the flavors.

Serve your creation on a beautiful plate, garnish with fresh herbs to add a touch of color and freshness. A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil from Spain just before serving will enhance the flavors even more.

This dish is not only proof that it is possible to create something delicious and nutritious from ingredients that would normally end up in the trash, but also an excellent way to incorporate Spanish extra virgin olive oil, a star product of Mediterranean cuisine, in our mission towards more conscious and sustainable eating.

Enjoy this culinary adventure, where each bite is a step towards reducing food waste.
