20 million loaves of bread are thrown away in New Zealand every year. It’s hard to believe that all of our uneaten crusts, stale slices and mouldy bread could add up to so much waste.
Bread is a staple ingredient but you may find you only ever use it for toast and sandwiches. There are lots of different things you can do with bread, like making our meal in a mug recipe. It’s sweet and satisfying and your kids can whip up this recipe in a matter of minutes, using whatever you have in the pantry. Our favourite combinations are banana and nutella, and peanut butter and jam.
