I am always looking for a way to use leftover food items. I can't stand to waste anything if there is a chance to use it in something else. Don't worry, it is only with food. I am no hoarder! So, when I came across this article from the Kitchn about how to use peels from potatoes and carrots, I was hooked.
The crispy skin makes me think of a healthier potato chip alternative. I can imagine it being topped with fresh jalapeno slices, grated Parmesan, and a Sriracha aioli (by Mario Batali) for dipping.
The peel baking options are limitless. The Kithcn even suggest using carrot peels with cinnamon and sugar, which I must say sounds like a great snack. I can't wait to get home and and grub on these bad boys.
