Cooking Concepts: Too Many Ingredients
Don’t use too many ingredients
One main problem people have with cooking is the use of too many ingredients.
People think of something they want to make…. and think to themselves, I really like this, this, this, this , this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, and this food. They then attempt to make every meal or many meals using all of these ingredients.
Sometimes people do not think vegetables change the flavor much of a dish. So they add all of the different ones they think they like. What they typically end up with is a “mess” of food that after they try it, they think…hmmm this ingredient will fix it. They add that ingredient… and it is still terrible.
The main problem is the use of too many ingredients. Sometimes a dish calls for many ingredients, many times it does not. Knowing the difference is very important. It is usually best to focus on a smaller number of more important things than think that every dish in a meal needs to be all things.
Trying to combine everything in the world into a food does not make it more healthy if you don’t end up wanting to eat the result.
Make your food focused and with a purpose…much like your life.
