Our July 2012 Daring Cooks’ host was Sarah from All Our Fingers in the Pie! Sarah challenges us to learn a new cooking technique called “Cooking En Papillote” which is French and translates to “cooking in parchment”.
I kind of like these challenges which are about a process more than a specific recipe. But I kind of don't too... The flexibility with the ingredients can be a really intimidating prospect! This time, though, I was psyched. Cooking "en papillote" is not new to me. Cooking in little packets can be a great thing - great flavor, easy to accommodate preferences, and easy clean-up, too!
For this challenge I made two different meals "en papilolte." The first was tofu and vegetables.
Filling individual "packets" for everyone:
