You may think you have it all under control, but a little extra preparation can make a huge difference.
Vegetables have to be cooked properly, and they need to be washed before they’re cooked, to ensure the best quality and texture.
You need to wash the vegetable in a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds to remove any excess water.
You then want to add the rest of the ingredients to a saucepan, bring it up to a simmer, and then leave it to cook for 15 minutes to give the vegetables a chance to absorb the flavours and flavoursome juices.
After a short while, the water should be reduced by half.
Add the vegetables to a bowl, cover and let them cook until tender.
This takes about an hour, depending on how old the vegetables are and how many are in the pot.
The vegetables can also be cooked in the same pot as the other ingredients, but the flavour is richer.
You can also use an immersion blender to puree the vegetables into a smooth paste before adding them to a pan.
Try adding the cooked vegetables to bowls of a salad, or a bowl of soup, or to salads of other greens.
There are a number of ways you can prepare the vegetable wash.
You could simply add the vegetables directly to a blender, add some extra oil to make the dish thicker, or just put them into a bowl with a ladle of water.
If you’ve been following the recipe on the blog, you’ll know that I’m not a big fan of adding the vegetables at this stage.
Instead, I like to add them to the pan to soak up all the flavours.
You don’t want them to sit in there for too long, as the juices will start to run down the sides and start to smell.
In the end, this can take around 30 minutes.
You also can add some fresh herbs to the vegetable, such as parsley or rosemary, to make it more refreshing.
If it’s too hard for you to find the ingredients, you can use fresh or dried spices.
There’s also a good chance that you could try the vegetable lo meins, which are traditionally made from chopped vegetables that have been ground to a pulp.
You’ll find them at the market, and can get a bag of these for about £10 at the grocery store.
I usually use them to make soup, but if you can find them in a small jar, you could use a small pan to make a pot or even use a strainer to drain them into.
You want the liquid to be as thin as possible, so you want the vegetable to be very soft, so it won’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
Once the vegetable is ready, add it to a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Cover and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Remove the vegetable from the oven and allow it to cool down for a minute before cutting into smaller pieces.
If the liquid has turned to a thick liquid, you might need to add more water to thicken it.
If that’s the case, use a fork to loosen the liquid from the sides of the pot and drain the vegetable.
The more liquid the better, as it’ll have a slightly thicker consistency.
This vegetable lo béchamel will be ready to serve in under 15 minutes, depending how thick you want it.
