In making my Moroccan Oxtail Tajine I trimmed a bunch of artichokes down to their bases. This left we with a pile of leaves and stems that I was loathed to just throw away.
My mother, Claudia, raised me to not waste food. I feel like it is an absolute sin when, for example, a recipe for chicken stock has you boil a whole chicken with vegetables and then instructs you to throw away the “solids.” These are recipes written by people who have never been hungry a day in their lives. I simply cannot do that!
