Green Your Cooking: Stop Short
Tip #1: Stop Short
Cooking instructions often seem like unbreakable codes. If it says 10 minutes, it means 10 minutes, right? Not necessarily: Once you heat up your oven or pot, they retain heat well. So consider turning the oven or stove off several minutes before the timer rings. Your food will keep cooking and you’ll cut down on energy use. It’s even possible to bring water to a boil, put pasta in, cover it, turn off the stove, and go for a walk. When you get back, your pasta will be ready.
