Kitchen Tips Tuesday: Preheating

November 4, 2014


We always preheat the oven before we start cooking and we would never consider putting food into a cold frying pan, yet most of us overlook this step when roasting foods in the oven.

Once the oven is preheated, place the pan you will be using in it for a few minutes to heat. If you will be using fat, add the butter or oil at this point, allowing it to melt and coat the pan. When you add the meat, chicken or vegetables to the hot pan, they will sear, getting a nice caramelized edge as the food continues to cook.

Unrecipe of the Week: Roasted Maple Carrots

September 20, 2013


Strolling through the Union Square Greenmarket yesterday, I was taken by an abundant display of carrots. There were not only the classic orange carrots, but there were also purple and white versions on display.

I was seduced to purchase some, and decided to roast them. They were delicious!

Maple Roasted Carrots:

Clean and scrape one bunch of carrots and cut them into 2″ or 3″ chunks.

Toss them with a little olive oil or coconut oil, and some pure maple syrup. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and some cayenne pepper. Roast for about 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven until caramelized and softened.

These carrots embody all of the sensational flavors of the season; sweet, salty, savoy and spicy! Eat them as a side dish, or dice them into an arugula salad drizzled with olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar.
