      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.
