When my mom talks about her childhood, it is all with a bittersweet tone. Mom was raised in a village in the northern part of Greece. She did not go to school, instead, she took sheep out to pasture. She did not have dolls or toys, rather she would fashion her own dolls with sticks and rocks. She was often barefoot, alone and hungry. The food they ate was homemade and homegrown. Eating meat was a once a year treat, reserved for specials occasions like Orthodox Easter. My mom, her sisters and her parents never wasted the food they had because they never knew if there would be enough.
This upbringing definitely explains my mom’s frugality and budgeting that I experienced when I was growing up. Mom was a master at finding deals, freezing meals and using up whatever she had in the fridge. I didn’t really understand this or appreciate this as a kid, but as a mom, I admire this so much. I am not nearly as good as her in finding food deals and making a little go a long way.
I was invited to learn more about Kroger and their Zero Hunger Zero Waste initiative to eliminate hunger and food waste around the nation. Kroger has set a goal to eliminate hunger by 2025 in all of its communities. Across the country, 42 million American struggle with not having enough to eat. Meanwhile, Americans are throwing away an alarming amount of unconsumed foods that are filling our landfills. To help give to those in need, Kroger is partnering with local food banks and other organizations (such as Feeding American) to not just get food but to receive well-balanced food as well.
Kroger is also working with programs such as World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to reduce the environmental impact that food production has habitats around the world. It’s all about how to feed people all while preserving nature.
About Flatbread Pizza
One thing I know for sure is this there will be no wasting this pizza! This flatbread pizza recipe is perfect for summer entertaining as it starts with store-bought flatbread pizza that is topped with a little Mexican crema (sour cream will work in a pinch) and garlic. Roasted corn makes up a bulk of the topping. Roasting brings out a smoky flavor that compliments the natural sweetness to the corn. Seasoning and feta round out the rest of the ingredients. This is such a simple recipe that works well as an appetizer or a meal. For more#RedWhiteandBBQ ideas, visit Kroger.com.
Tips: This is a great way to use up leftover grilled corn. Just cut it off the cob, toss it with seasoning and it’s ready for pizza! You can also use leftover corn in this Elote Corn Salad Recipe!
Do you find yourself wasting food? I hate to say that I am guilty of it. My goal going forward is to work hard to stop food waste in my own home. I can repurpose leftovers, use up ingredients in my fridge and pantry to make new meals or if I do have an abundance of food, to deliver to local schools or food pantries. Can we make a challenge of this together?
- 1 package of flatbreads (2 per package)
- 1/2 cup Mexican crema
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 ears of corn, grilled (I used the 4 pack already packaged in the Kroger Produce)
- 1 tablespoon Kroger chili powder
- 1/4 cojito cheese
- 1 teaspoon Kroger cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Splash of lime
- 2 oz Private Selection Crumbled Feta Cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Arrange flatbreads on baking sheets and set aside.
In a bowl, combine the crema, garlic, and salt. Spread the cream mixture over the flatbreads.
Remove the kernels from the corn cobs and combine the corn with the chili powder, cheese, cumin, and salt. Divide corn over the cream mixture. Top each flatbread with feta cheese.
Bake flatbreads for 8 minutes. Remove and hit the pizzas with a tiny splash of lime. Garnish with cilantro.
