5 Approaches For Better Vegetarian Cooking
Too often cooks overload vegetarian meals with rich, heavy ingredients, and we've all suffered the result: oily, laden dishes that taste more like cheese or starch than vegetables. Learn to let the vegetarian ingredients shine. Create contrasting textures and flavors with strategic, minimal and rich additions that complement but don't overwhelm. And as you build in richness, counterbalance it with tartness and freshness.
- Meal Cheats - Learn our essential techniques and ingredients for making robust and satisfying vegetarian meals.
- Beans - Give canned beans a face lift by microwaving and mashing.
- Grains - Boost grains by cooking in amped up liquid or toasting before cooking.
- Vegetables - Char for savory depth and sequence cooking time for better flavor and texture.
- Eggs - Poach, steam and fry eggs to turn sides into mains.
