I know this is a recipe site but I know there are those out there who have all kinds of excues for not only going veg, but simply cooking fresh.
It's not convenient I can't shop for fresh ingredients that often So much goes to waste if I buy in bulk. I like to have things easy to heat and eat I don't have time to cook from scratch
The list of pathetic excuses goes on and on.
So what about a helfpul hints section? Things that make going veg easy, fast, convenient and maybe even money saving?
For example, right now, even as I type I am utilizing a bag of potatoes that I almost forogt about. I needed to use up the whole bag immediately before they went off but the thought of 5 pounds of potential potato salad just didn't seem worth it to me. So here's what I did...
I roasted some in olive oil & mushroom soup mix for dinner tonight. Simple and totally YUM!
I am boiling some which, when cooled I will put in a feeezer bag and freeze. Then when I want mashed potatoes I will just pull out the chunks of cooked potato, defrost them in a pan with some milk & butter and mash away! Half the time, all of the taste.
The baked spuds will be similar. Once cooled, I'll cube them up and freeze them. Then when I need some potatoes to fry, up as in today's Bubble n' Squeak or even home fries, they'll be ready and it will just take a minue to saute' them up.
No waste, no excuses, & money saved by buying the larger bag of spuds.
Just a thought.
