roasting with ease
Roasting brings out the natural sweetness in vegetables and enhances the taste of meat.
1 Always have your red meat at room temperature before you roast.
2 Cooking vegetables in a covered microwave dish with no water and then draining and adding to the roasting pan gives you great roast vegetables.
3 Use your oven effectively – if roasting meat and veg why not add a pudding as well – one heat – a whole dinner.
4 Some items improve greatly from roasting – capsicums and asparagus are two examples
5 When roasting large meat items like a glazed ham – line your trays with foil for easy clean up
6 Cut your vegetables into even pieces so they cook at an even rate.
7 Don’t crowd your veges. The more space around your veges the better they will brown.
