Example text

The broiling zucchini number is fast and easy and works for most other vegetables as well. the fleshy ones provide the best results of course but slices of a large beet or rutabaga work great. starchy root vegetables (potato, yam, manioc) in a sandwich get a little on the chalky side for me and are best enjoyed on their own. baking the vegetable, as is done in the squash recipe (below) takes a little longer and gives a sweeter softer taste. it’s also appropriate if you want to throw a bunch of other flavors in with your main event: the added time helps them break the ice; the lower heat keeps smaller guys from burning as the larger ones finish cooking.

Add salt and pepper, toss and stir a minute longer, and serve. if you run into serious sticking problems, assuage the situation by adding a little more oil to the pan (not directly to a potato — he will greedily absorb it all leaving nothing for his brethren). adding water to the pan, which may at some points seem like a good idea, will likely cause over-steaming and a mushy potato result which you will have to rename before serving. 3 soy-ginger cabbage salad one of the most popular dishes (among gringos) at O Bigode, this salad marinates thinly prepared vegetables with a powerful dressing.

When you’re ready to serve, cut the polenta into pieces (squares, triangles, circles using a coffee cup, narrow rectangles to be seared on their sides) and perhaps in half heightwise if they’re thick enough. heat some oil or butter in pan (good high heat) and reverently toss a peeled clove of garlic into the oil. when the oil is hot and garlic is fragrant, begin searing. each piece should cook for a minute or two on each side: enough to pop, brown, blister, and warm all the way through. it helps to cover the pan as you’re searing the second side to add steaming action and make sure the middle is hot — especially for thick pieces.
