I’m a super-impatient cook, when I cook at all. I quickly get discouraged with chopping and simmering and adjusting flavors. And forget baking!
So this is perfect for my slapdash style of cooking. Green beans, tossed with olive oil and a generous pinch of salt. Roasted at 425F for about 15 minutes.
I would have called that done, except Crystal came in from stage right with a great suggestion – the sauce in her post: http://poco-cocoa.com/2006/08/oh-so-good/
Making the sauce took MAYBE five minutes, total, and that’s with very little attention. And, bam, side dish!
