  • cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

    I’m hungry and out of food, but found these two items I am wondering if possible to make the groats, which I’ve never made before, using the veg broth for flavor. Any ideas or instruction recipes?
    Hey thanks Anne! I actually have 2 onions and olive oil too! I think I will try out your recipe! how much oil should I use to fry the onions in?

    I have leftover soup sitting in my freezer containing black beans, corn, and bulgur wheat (as well as other veggies) and was thinking a southwest casserole would be cool! So aside from adding crumbled tortilla chips on top, should I do a white cream sauce, or something else as a binder? Also, which spices should I definitely include and would adding some salsa make it tasty? This will be vegan. Thank you!

    I sprayed cooking oil onto my baking sheet, as directed by a recipe. There is now a brown layer of cooked-on cooking spray on the baking sheet. I have tried scraping it off and it has been through the dishwasher a few times. It isn’t hardened or burnt, but it’s sticky. What can I do?
