I think I’ve done my time in the kitchen.
I cooked daily for the family and always made sure they ate ‘healthy’
I still eat ‘healthy’ but really I want to spend a whole lot less time there than I used to in the kitchen.
I have been collecting kitchen short-cuts ever since I started cooking, and that was a while ago!
My favourite is probably the lettuce slam! Instantly core a head of iceberg lettuce by slamming it down on a cutting board. So simple and clean. then I also picked up that if I microwaved my lemons and limes I got a whole lot more juice out.
Anyway the other day I bumped into this simple tip and was very pleased to add it to my repertoire of kitchen short cuts.
Of course I had to keep looking now I’d started and here are a few more goodies:
- Use a spoon to peel a kiwi from the inside out.
- Pre-soak pasta and it will cook in about 60 seconds.
- Hold cherry tomatoes between two plastic lids to slice them all at once.
Hope that cuts a few more minutes of the preparation and cooking times.
Eat well till the next time
