7 “Scrappy” Recipes to Try This Holiday Season December 1, 2021 December 19, 2021 Last month we partnered with the James Beard Foundation and Henrietta Red's chef Julia Sullivan to show you how your food scraps can be used to make delicious and beautiful meals. With the holidays upon us, we're cooking more now than any other time of year. In fact, waste increases by 25% between Thanksgiving and New Years Day. This year, try saving your scraps and repurposing your leftovers into one of these great dishes. 1. Butternut Squash Salad Give the recipes from our "Waste-Not" Cooking Demo a try, starting with this beautiful Butternut Squash Salad. 2. Strawberry Jam Didn't make as many smoothies as you expected? Turn those strawberries into jam. 3. Holiday Cinnamon Banana Bread Don't throw your over-ripe bananas away! Take this banana bread to your next holiday gathering instead. 4. Cinnamon Spice Applesauce Similarly, turn your extra apples into this applesauce for the whole family. 5. Roasted Turnips and Winter Squash Here's a great way to use any extra chopped vegetables that didn't fit into another dish. 6. Leftover Turkey and Stuffing Stuffed Peppers When you've used all your holiday spirit, but you still have holiday leftovers, change the mood and eat the food as these stuffed peppers. 7.
