Cooking the Perfect Veggies Every Time!

Posted by:

I don’t know about you, but even after cooking for as long as I have, my veggies don’t always come out the way I want them to. Part of the problem is keeping all the cooking times straight–some you can play by ear, but others need to be baby-sat nearly every moment so they don’t become charcoaled, mushy or limp.  But who has the time to stare at a bunch of carrots while they’re steaming and catch them at just the right second before they cross over from delicious to doomed?

Yeah, I don’t either.

Fortunately, the folks over at Lark and Larks have created this handy little cheat sheet of times for roasting, steaming and boiling eleven common veggies.  Click on the image to make it bigger and never worry about when to serve your asparagus (or eggplant, or green beans or cauliflower) again!
