When you are going to make vegetable soup, add your onions, tomatoes, carrots, peppers and
other vegetables to oil or butter before you add them to water. By doing this, you will find that the
soup has a richer taste to it and the sugars are more normalized this way.

Tofu is a great source of protein that vegetarians should use to get the nutrients their body needs.
Many vegetarians are lacking in protein because they are not eating meat. Tofu can be prepared
in a variety of ways and really soaks up flavors so it can be served as a meal or as a quick snack.

For a more flavorful fried fish coating, replace the usual crackers with your favorite kind of chips.
Salt and vinegar chips crush up just as nice as crackers while adding more depth to the final
flavor of fish. You can also replace the usual milk dip with dressing for another pop of unexpected
flavor.

Use a heavy duty, zip-lock plastic bag to separate pan drippings. After roasting meat, pour the
pan drippings into a zip-lock plastic bag. Let the fat rise to the top. Carefully snip off one of the
bottom corners on the bag, and pour out the fat-free broth. The fat will stay in the plastic bag, and
you will have a tasty broth as a base for gravy or a sauce.

Kneading is a tiring task, but the constantly moving board makes it even more difficult. Have you
tried a few unsuccessful tricks to secure the board? Try the simplest of all which always deliver
the best results. Place a damp towel under the board you are using to knead the dough. It will
keep the board in place.
If you have used entirely too much salt in your soup pan, all you have to do is add a raw potato
into the mixture. One whole potato should suffice, unless you went way over board, then add two.
This will help absorb some of the extra salt in the pan and save your dinner!

fun that you have in the kitchen. Put the music on loud and dance from time to time to enjoy what

spray keeps food from sticking to a pan without adding unneeded fats and calories. There are
some sprays that are flavored, so that you can get the same flavor as if you had used butter.

You should always use a sharp knife. Contrary to popular belief, using sharp knives is far safer
than using dull ones. Because more force is needed to cut with a dull knife, users are much more
likely to lose control of it, and that can cause accidental cuts. Sharp knives are also more efficient
and faster to work with.
