All Your Cooking Questions Answered Here Is cooking for your family starting to drive you nuts? Don’t get frustrated by cooking! Follow the tips presented here to prepare excellent meals with only a minimum of stress. Once you follow the tips from this article, you will look back and laugh at how stressed out cooking used to make you feel. To use all of your leftover vegetables before you go out shopping, try putting them in a wok with some fried rice. Cool, day-old rice is best, but if you must make it fresh, cut the water by just a bit to make slightly drier rice. Take your leftovers and start frying them in a small amount of oil. Once this mixture is heated up a bit, add the rice. Mix thoroughly before adding in the seasonings of your choice. Common additions include ginger, garlic, cayenne pepper for a bit of a kick and soy sauce. Dark, leafy greens are extremely nutritious, but it can be time-consuming to prepare them. Removing thick, tough leaf stems can be time-consuming. An easy way to do this is to fold the leaf lengthwise, then break the stem off from the center. You can also use a sharp paring knife to cut out the stem. Unfold the leaf and you have a perfectly de-stemmed green. If you enjoy fish, try catching your own to save money. You will have literally taught yourself to fish and you will feel great as you prepare a meal that you provided for yourself. Use brine in your cooking. Soak your turkey, duck or chicken in brine for an hour prior to cooking if you want the best flavor from the poultry. There are two fast, easy ways to get warm, crisp tortillas. One way is to preheat the oven temperature to 350, then place the tortillas on the rack. Or you can place a tortilla directly over the flame when you are cooking with a gas stove top. Any of these methods will reward you with tastier, fresher tortillas. Saute vegetables in some chicken broth for a healthier option. The chicken broth will cut down on the fat in your vegetable dishes while enhancing their flavor. This is a delicious and healthy way to easily cook vegetables. Are you aiming to reduce the amount of fat and calories you consume in your mashed potatoes without having to give up taste or texture? If so, consider replacing a certain amount of the potatoes with cauliflower. The bland cauliflower taste will make it so that you do not notice much difference in the taste, while accentuating the taste of some of the other ingredients. It also mimics the texture and color of the potatoes almost perfectly letting you up your vegetable intake, and drop the calories, all the while giving the same delicious potato experience we all know and love. Cooking for your family can become overwhelming and tedious over time, that’s a fact. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to simplify the cooking process. When you are cooking, relax and enjoy utilizing the new skills you have gained.
