Hey there. I’m Linda Ly.
I’m a lover of all things green and a believer in the simple life, a life where good friends, great food, and playing in the dirt are the keys to happiness.
My passion is getting people outside to immerse in the thrill of self-sufficiency — even if they live in the city — and experience all the wild things that life has to offer.
Stop. Composting. (Really!)
And start using all the odds and ends of your vegetables in new and delicious ways!
The No-Waste Vegetable Cookbook takes a unique top-to-tail approach to cooking, allowing you to fully utilize every edible part of the plants you grow or buy.
Think fava bean greens… or squash leaves… or sweet potato vines… or carrot tops, radish greens, and many more “scraps” that you might not have known were edible!
