Reader question: Dear Elizabeth, I am glad to have a copy of Glorious One-Pot Meals (I saw a copy at my library, and bought my own copy). Here is my question:
I understand that the whole point is to cook the meal at 450 but if that isn’t possible, and I can’t go above, say, 400m can I just add extra time and will the ingredients still work?
I’m excited to hear how much you like Glorious One-Pot Meals! Thanks for sharing your story with me.
I hate to break it to you, but the 450F temp is one of the secrets to this style of foolproof cooking. While some recipes may turn out ok at 400, others will undercook some ingredients while overcooking others. 🙁
If the highest heat you can generate is only 400 degrees, you may find the best results with vegetarian recipes.
My suggestion is to experiment and see if you get the telltale aroma of a fully-cooked meal to let you know when the meal is ready.
