Transcript of "Vegetarian crockpot"

  1. 1. Vegetarian Crockpot Crockpots, or slow cookers, have fast become healthy recipes videos indispensable food preparation tools for individuals on the go who do not want to slave over the kitchen with multi-stage cooking methods. The Crock Pot is online recipes videos actually a brand name for a small electrical appliance invented in the 1970s for simmering foods over an extended period of time overlow temperatures compared to other cooking methods. An advantage marketers of crockpots is the that you can just toss ingredientsin a pot, lightly brown it in some oil, add a cooking liquid of water, broth or wine andleave it unattended until done without burning. This is mostly applicable for cookingof a pot roast, soups and stews. Though crockpots have evolved considerably since its inception, the basicconcept of a glass-lidded glazed ceramic or porcelain cooking vessel surroundedby a metal housing with a heating element remains pretty much the same. Thegrooved vessel or “crock” acts to condense the vapor from the cooking liquid andprovides an interior low-pressure seal. As there is no tight clamp involved, there is norisk of sudden release as with a pressure cooker. Modern versions of crockpots have advance features like thermostats, timerswhich eliminate or reduce the chance of overcooking. These add to the alreadyconvenient concept. Many manufacturers from different countries manufacturecrockpots using different materials and sell it at different price levels. In conventional food preparation, the advantage of crockpot cookery allowsfor the use of cheaper, tougher cuts of meat as the slow cooking method allow fornatural tenderization, similar to stewing. Some modifications have to be observedparticularly the seasoning levels as the concentration of the cooking liquid maymake the final dish too salty. Start with less salt and spices and adjust towards theend of cooking. Also, allow for different cooking times of the components of yourdish. One-pot cooking also reduces clean up time. In vegetarian crockpot cooking, preparation time doesn’t vary as much aswhen you’re cooking meats. An advantage of cooking vegetarian dishes in acrockpot is it is virtually impossible to burn food due to low heat especially withadvance models which can be set to adjust temperature as the food cooks. Extracare must be taken as vegetables easily overcook and become mushy and moreimportantly lose valuable nutrients. Raw vegetarians frown upon the use ofcrockpots and pretty much any cooking as it supposedly boils out heat-sensitivenutrients and kills live enzymes found in raw vegetables. Vegetarian and vegan crockpot recipes abound online, however, one needsnot go on the web. Several vegetable soups, stews and some desserts can beprepared with the use of a crockpot.
