DON’T THROW AWAY YOUR VEGGIE PEELINGS

Yeah I know, you’re thinking they’re not healthy, but veggie peelings are packed with nutrients.  Cooked in a high heat resistant oil like , coconut oil, olive oil (temp must be below 190°C 350°F) or good old fashioned lard, these treats are delicious and I just couldn’t stop eating them myself!  I had three dogs in my house when cooking them and they all just adored them. On cooked meal days we boil any vegetable trimmings and add to the dog food – nothing gets dumped in this house except onion rings.  So we’re talking cauliflower, broccoli, root veggies and even neep skins get boiled as fillers.  But for soft skin roots like potatoes, parsnips, carrots, beetroot etc…they get deep fried for dog treats!
