Carrot greens tea
I rescued a bunch of carrot tops from a box headed for the dumpster at work. Some went into a white bean soup. One bunch became carrot greens tea, which is supposed to be very good for your kidneys.
It's just boiling water poured over the greens, let sit for a few minutes. I let the water sit until it was tepid, and the flavor was a little strong for my taste. (Although reheated, with honey, it was fine.) It tasted like carrots and greens and garden dirt all in one.
I didn't notice any difference in my kidneys. But it was a fun experiment. My recommendation with carrot greens is still to use them in soups.
