Air Roasted Veggies

At least the air roasting is true for the carrots, sprouts, and broccoli.  The potatoes were boiled, smashed and then roasted on a tray below the basket with the other veggies. Everything was tossed with oil and kosher salt.

I set the temp at 350 to start and then bumped it to 375.  They took about 13-14 minutes after it came to temp but I put everything in before it was fully pre-heated.  I’m still feeling my way around cooking times, not ready yet to set and forget until the timer chimes.


Modern Lasagna

Modern in the sense that I used sodium citrate dissolved in milk to aid in the making of the cheese sauce.  (I did it in a little water so I could see it dissolve.)  Much like the modern mac and cheese recipe I used a while back I used it to melt mozzarella and parmesan in the sauce.  It was similar to a bechamel and it worked very well.Not much to look at, the first portion dug out of the pan while it was still warm.  The taste was great, though. I worried that the lack of flour might affect the “set” of the lasagna. It might have, but it’s difficult to tell.  A reheated portion the next day was OK.Two people can’t eat all of that so I froze individual portions for later.
