Here are all the rules to follow in order to have less dirty dishes and enjoy the after dinner relaxation without worries
How many times have we given up cooking an extra dish at the thought of the dishes and the hob to be washed? Stand bent over the sink to descale, clean, rinse and dry dishes it is not a popular activity. Especially after dinner, when you just want to relax.
But the solution is neither to not cook nor to eat with disposable dishes. We can indeed work on prevention: that is, following simple rules to develop the method suitable for dirtying few dishes.
Use the same cutting board on both sides
After cutting on one side, dry it with a sheet of absorbent paper, turn it and proceed with cutting the second preparation. If you can cut dry and soft foods in the right sequence, cleaning operations may not be necessary between each cut.
Optimize the accessories
The same accessory can have many functions: with a knife you can clean the vegetables, crush the garlic and peel without necessarily using more specific objects.
The soak container
The dirtiest utensils can be immersed after use in a basin with hot soapy water. In this way the scale will not form and will be easier to clean.
A tactical bowl
Use a steel bastard in which to store the lightly soiled utensils that you have used in the preparations: from here they can be easily recovered since they will remain visible and will not get too dirty as instead happens in the sink.
The measuring cups
The containers for measuring food can be used for all foods if care is taken to start with flours, salt, sugar and dry ingredients, leaving the ones that leave residues last.
All in a pot
If you have to boil some vegetables and cook rice or pasta, do it in the same pot. Start obviously from the vegetables that you will immerse in boiling salted water. Remove them, drain them and then proceed with pasta or rice that are then put on the fire because they release starch.
All in one pan
By calculating the right cooking times, you can prepare the main course in just one pan. For example, meat or fish and braised vegetables will allow you to soil just one pot.
Cover the pan
If you have to toast bread, dried fruit or other foods that require delicate cooking, you can do this by coating the base with aluminum foil.
Study the recipe
Some preparations require many steps and following them step by step leads us to use many bowls and utensils. We try to optimize them by combining immediately the ingredients that will be cooked in the same pot with the same timing.
The graduated glass
To measure liquids, use the same graduated cup: a quick passage under the water between one measurement and another will be sufficient.
