Re: Ask me a cooking question

Potatoes can be roasted in oil, that's how I always do them.

I do carrots braised in butter and honey, but you could use oil and brown sugar. You just cut them up, toss them in it with some pepper, put in a dish covered with foil and cook along with the potatoes. I don't add salt to the carrots but that's up to you.

Vegan stuffing shouldn't be all that tricky, just make a breadcrumb based stuffing and use oil instead of butter. There are bound to be plenty of recipes online.

But am I understanding this right? You want to eat roast turkey but have vegan sides? That's... unusual.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I think the turkey is for their guests.   I  am actually quite impressed that a vegan would be willing to cook a turkey   for friends or family.


How about miso/toasted sesame oil  glazed roasted cauliflower steaks ?

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie

I'm a great fan of your cooking.  I love salads and like the way you turn them out.  Can you please tell me exactly the model name and the make of your food processor you use on these 30 minute cooking programmes.  ASAP.

Many thanks

Re: Ask me a cooking question

How do you make cauliflower into a steak? Do you chop it and push it back together as a sort of burger type thing? If so, what do you bind it with and do you use a coating?

you cut it so it looks something like this.

you roast it hot and then brush on the glaze  a few minutes before the end of cooking. .  As long as you like cauliflower it is a pretty easy , but somewhat  unusual side.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

cmcconnell1031.  Never seen cranberry 'jam', as such.  Cranberry Sauce is the one to look for.  You should find it in your supermarket with other sauces.  Happy hunting.  Oh and welcome to the forum.
