How to make quick, easy and tasty recipes
When you say something is tasty, it means the dish has flavor that is beyond ordinary. Combine that with simplicity and you’ve got yourself a doable recipe to do at your home or professional kitchen.
Finest quality ingredients are at the core of tasty simple recipes. It doesn’t have to be expensive (but if you can, go ahead and splurge) because it could simply be fresh produce harvested in season, newly caught fish, first press of a coconut for the cream, and more. Cooked as close to the source as possible, the resulting dish that use these fine quality ingredients are simply incomparable.
With your main ingredient procured, consider the power of your spice rack in making things tasty. Even a small bottle of dried herbs can transform your dish. Whenever possible, use fresh herbs from the garden like basil leaves, thyme, rosemary, oregano and chervil. Make a pesto sauce and add it to pastas and stews. Ground your spices using a mortar and pestle (or food processor). Put your zester to use and collect citrus rinds to sharpen the food flavors.
Garlic, onions, and ginger also contribute to tasty simple recipes. Give them more depth through how you prepare them for the dish. Garlic can be roasted whole and then used to flavor stews, casseroles, and more. Onions can be simmered till soft and golden brown to produce caramelization and turn your sandwich, meats, and even bread loaves really tasty. Finely grated ginger gives sauces, marinades, and dips that Asian-style flavor profile.
Lastly, make full use of two cooking techniques that release a lot of flavors in food—sautéing and grilling. The basis of some culinary cultures of the world involves basic sautéing of vegetables including garlic and onions. While grilled foods, with its charred edges and grill marks, release flavors that are big, bold and real tasty.
