And I don’t necessarily mean ask me, although of course you can, and I’m only too happy to help, but mainly I mean: ask them!
I’ve said it before, probably around this same time last year, but I’ll keep saying it: ask your vegetarian, or vegan, or food intolerant, guest what they’d like to eat. Don’t guess, don’t give yourself the stress of trying to figure it out if you’re not sure. Call them, email them, ask them what kind of dish they’d like. If they’re anything like me, they’ll be grateful that you asked, and relieved that they know they’ll be catered for. Please. Make your life simple 🙂
And once you know what they’d like, I of course offer you my entire collection of recipes, I hope something may be of use.
In the meantime, I’d like to offer a couple of new ideas (to me anyway) for roasting vegetables, in particular carrots…
Roasted carrots are so tasty, but sometimes it takes so long to get them cooked through, that they can get almost overcooked in your attempts to roast them. When I read this tip on Sally’s lovely blog, I immediately tried it and it works very well. I HIGHLY recommend that you try it out, with carrots and other dense vegetables, particularly root vegetables.
Once you’ve tried that, try this…this is a tip from Jamie Oliver, so it must be good mustn’t it?!
Two tips I highly recommend, and great for me to learn new ideas for roasting vegetables – and I thought I knew them all!
