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.
