Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Tomato Paste

kitchen quick tips

Quite often a recipe will call for 1 tbsp of tomato paste. The problem is you have to open a 4 oz tin of tomato paste to get that 1 tbsp then you are left wondering what to do with the rest. Spoon the remaining tomato paste into an ice cube tray. When frozen pop out the frozen cubes for ready to use amounts of tomato paste. Place in a zipper style freezer bag for use as needed.
