Cooking - a menu for saving

pans
Vegetables cook faster if you chop them into smaller chunks, use just enough water to cover, use the smallest pan possible for the quantity, and cover with a lid.You can also use a steamer to cook several vegetables on the same ring - they taste better too. Only use the oven for cooking lots of food at the same time - you can freeze any you don't need that day. Or use a microwave - it's much quicker and more economical to use for smaller quantities.
