I keep 2 gallon-size Ziplock bags in the freezer. One bag gets vegetable peels and trimmings (onion skins, carrot tops, celery leaves, etc., no potatoes, though). When it's full, I toss it into a pot with water and boil for a few minutes. Free vegetable broth!
Whenever we have leftover cooked veggies, I toss them into the other bag. I add those to casseroles and soups.
