Stovetop Roasting: Recipe Ideas Galore
Summer encourages the experimentation with creative and fun new recipes, full of bold and fresh flavors. We may feel discouraged, however, when the weather deters us from our kitchen adventures- suffocating humidity threatens to put a stop to our tinkering. The last thing we can imagine doing is turning on the sweltering hot oven! Besides, we poor city rats have no access to an outdoors grill, or to an outdoors space, for that matter. Please invite us to your next BBQ!
But have no fear! We have a summer cooking life-hack for you: Stovetop roasting and recipes galore! Summer cooking woes, begone. As moist and succulent as with the best grill!
In fact I do Stovetop Roasting Year Round!
Your oven may be housing a turkey or a roast, which alone keep the oven occupied for several hours. Why wait around, when you can do a fantastic job on the stovetop?
Roast those veggies right in your skillet!
Why roast on a stovetop?
We’re so glad you asked! Stovetop roasting is key in the summer because it will roast your dishes in no time, and produces a delicious roasted result- almost like you spent time slaving away at the grill! The key is to have a solid and reliable nonstick skillet; one that can get any job done, a few drops of oil is all you need. This enables healthier cooking, because you are greatly reducing unnecessary fats! We recommend a Calphalon Aluminum Cookware Pan. Seriously, I couldn’t be without it. It is my workhorse. Handsome enough and large enough to make paella and bring it right to the table. We promise that this durable pan will give you only the best results as you embark on your stovetop roasting adventures! (Image courtesy of the Amazon link.)
This week alone I prepared most of my shabbos meal in it, cutting up the next vegetables while the current one was getting ready. Take a look! Boneless Chicken Thigh, baby kale, cauliflower, portobello, in no time
Here’s a wonderful dish of sausage, kale and butternut squash I made last Thanksgiving, the picture tells the whole story!
