Veggie Shredders are one of my kid’s favourites. And they are packed with sneaky veggies in disguise which makes them a massive win in our house. Veggies shredders are not only easy to make, but a perfect lunch, dinner or snack option to get rid of those leftover veggies from last night You can add, leave out or swap veggies with whatever you have in your fridge. I always spend Sunday afternoons checking  the crisper to see what I can shred and cleaning the fridge before it starts growing it’s own colony. That’s one of the great things about veggie shredders – they work with just about any veggie out there! If you can shred them, you can add them.

And this is why Veggies Shredders are our third featured recipe in our Food Waste Challenge series.

Thanks to our partners at GLAD, we’ve come up with 12 extra-amazing recipes designed to help you reduce your food waste and show you the naked truth about how packaging can help you waste less food. The best way to prevent your veggies from turning is to store them correctly from the start. Setting aside a few extra minutes when you get home from with your shopping to wrap, shred and store your veggies in your crisper means they will stay fresh in the fridge for longer.

You can view all the recipes and collect the Recipe Cards, packed with great hints on proper food storage, freezing methods and tips on meal preparation and more!

Veggie Storage Hints and Tips:

  • Fruits and veggies are the most common items in the fridge that go to waste. At the end of the week Sunday is a great day to investigate what’s left in your crisper and make your shredders. Start grating now and never throw that pesky half a carrot or zucchini out again.
  • Veggie Shredders can be frozen up to six months. Make a bunch now and freeze for later in Sandwich size GLAD Snap Lock Bags. They store four shredders perfectly and are thicker than standard freezer bags helping prevent freezer burn for longer.
  • Get organised and reduce the risk of your veggies going off with adequate storage of your veggies from the start. Set aside a few minutes after your weekly shop to grate them and store them in GLAD Snap Lock Bags, ready for salads, slices, meat patties, sauces and much more!
