    Default Thanksgiving Fixes: Accidently overcooked your Veggies?

    Q I only turned away from the stove for a second, but now my
    (broccoli, cauliflower, peas, sweet potatoes, parsnips, insert
    vegetable here) has turned to mush. What can I do?

    A Thank goodness for cheese and cream. When you're floating in a sea
    of mush, they're the greatest lifesavers. You can put said squishy
    vegetables in a casserole dish, spoon on tomato sauce or a cream
    sauce, then top with grated cheese and bake. Serve as a fancy gratin.

    Or puree the vegetable with some chopped herbs, stir in a little
    butter and heavy cream, season with salt and pepper and serve as a
    trendy side dish puree worthy of a four-star restaurant.

    Or add the overcooked veggie to a pot with chicken or vegetable stock,
    some sauteed onions or garlic, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil,
    then cool a bit and puree. Return to pot to reheat, and stir in a
    little cream or butter, if you like. Serve as an elegant soup.
