“You’re going to see a lot of different kinds of vegetables and some really good ones,” says Rona Jaffe, co-founder and president of The Drumstick Group.
“Some are quite good, some are quite bad.
But there are some that are really tasty, and some that I would rather have.”
Jaffe, who has been an advocate for sustainable eating for a decade, says she’s been looking for a way to promote the variety and variety of vegetables available in grocery stores.
She’s also known for her enthusiasm for creating unique and delicious dishes using local ingredients.
Jaffe’s drumstick vegetable dishes have been featured on Cooking Light and other food networks, and she’s also collaborated with other chefs on cooking books and cookbooks.
Here are a few of her top tips to create great drumstick recipes.1.
Choose a different type of vegetable.
You might choose a red-eyed potato, or a blueberry and white potato, for example.
This way, the vegetables are different but still come from the same region.2.
Add the seasonings.
“You can use the seasoning on your vegetables,” Jaffe says.
“If you have a red beet, you could use lemon zest or a lime zest.
Or if you have green pepper, you can add some salt and pepper.
You can also add some cayenne pepper, or some black pepper.”3.
Add a sauce.
Jaffe suggests adding a little of the season and herbs, but don’t add too much.
She also suggests using a little more vinegar and garlic, and using some chicken broth, as well as a few spices like ground cumin and cayiao pepper.4.
Add some fresh herbs and vegetables.
Some vegetables, like carrots, may be more difficult to find than others.
To find the freshest, fresh-picked vegetables, Jaffe advises looking at her website.
“I’ve had to go to a lot, and the ones that are in season, they usually have a name and are more difficult for me to find,” she says.5.
Season the vegetables with salt and seasonings, but keep it simple.
“There are so many varieties of vegetables,” she explains.
“But we’ve learned from our experience that if you’re not doing anything special, you won’t taste them at all.”6.
Cook the vegetables.
“Cooking with a lot more seasonings will give the vegetables a really delicious taste and flavor,” she adds.
“It’s not the same as cooking the vegetables in the microwave, but it will give them a better texture.”7.
Keep the vegetables separate.
“The vegetables need to be cooked separately, and you have to use a timer,” Jaffa says.
For example, if you want a red or blue beet, use the timer and cook for 20 minutes, or just cook for 30 minutes.
If you want more of a red, you might have to wait for the timer to run out.
“That’s when the flavor starts to develop,” she recommends.
“When you get to 30 minutes, it’s the flavor of the vegetables that you taste.”8.
Store the vegetables at room temperature.
“We’ve always said that if it’s cold outside, put it in a freezer,” she advises.
“No one likes to get cold vegetables.”9.
Use the drumstick.
“Drumsticks are a great way to make the vegetables last longer,” she points out.
The drumstick is the main part of the cooking process, and if the vegetables aren’t used all at once, the cooking time will last longer.
If there are no drumsticks left, add them slowly over a low flame.
The vegetable will cook evenly, and they’ll taste more like the original than the canned vegetable that you bought.10.
Store them in a sealed container.
“In the freezer, you don’t want to put the vegetables out, but you want to store them in the refrigerator, at room temp,” Jafa says, adding that she does recommend sealing the drumsticks.
“They last so long, they just don’t last.”
Jafaa’s drumsticks are also good for a party, or when you want something to be more appetizing for your family.
You could also make them into soups, salads, and other dishes.
Jafaa says that if the drum sticks aren’t available, you may also be able to use frozen vegetables instead.
But she advises sticking with canned vegetables to avoid having to use fresh, organic ones.
She suggests buying organic, local, and fresh drumsticks instead of using frozen ones, or buying them frozen and freezing them to use as your vegetable substitute.11.
Enjoy the dish.
Jafas drumsticks taste really good, and once you serve them, they’ll be the center of your next meal.
