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.
