How to Sauté Practice
If you really want to learn how to cook, then you need to practice the concepts taught in this lesson. We've compiled some "edible exercises" along with some supporting recipes that will help reinforce what was taught in this lesson.
To practice sautéing, cook a few of the vegetable dishes below. Make sure that your ingredients are properly prepped (uniformly cut and dried), the pan temperature is hot enough and you maintain a good sizzle. Don’t toss or stir the food much, particularly during the first 30 seconds to a minute. This will help the food develop a nice, golden color. Use those pan tossing skills a few times to toss the food during cooking.
Practice your sautéing skills without a recipe. It's a fast way to have a side of crisp and healthy vegetables on the table every day. After sautéing, simply season with a bit of salt and pepper to highlight the natural flavor.
