Did you know that? According to the ADEME, the annual carbon footprint of food waste would be nearly 15.5 million tons of carbon dioxide per year or 3% of France's greenhouse gas emissions. In order to fight against food waste at home, we suggest you to reproduce this anti-waste recipe elaborated by our chefs.

Milk foam with apple peelings

Place the velouté of carrots in a bowl. 
With a blender, give some impulses to foam.
Recover the foam with a spoon and place it delicately on the velouté. 
Finish with ¼ pepper mill turn.
