Did you know that several of your kitchen vegetable scraps can be used to regrow those vegetables? Green onions, lettuce and celery can be regrown within days in the comfort of your home – no garden or dirt needed. Not only is it a fun experiment in the kitchen, but it’s also quite resourceful and easy to do.
All you need is your vegetable scraps, a small container, water, and a nice sunny spot.
To regow your vegetable, place the roots or heart of the vegetable in a container with about an inch of water. Place in a sunny spot and watch the vegetable grow, and in about a week you’ll have fresh produce to reuse. Change out the water every couple days to keep the water fresh and encourage more growth.
Green onions are the easiest vegetable to regrow. Here’s a timeline of the how quickly they grow.
Then the green onions were chopped up and used in this tasty Veggie Quiche Muffin recipe from Food Hero.
Try regrowing some of your vegetables at home and share your success with us! Happy “gardening”!
