  • For grains that absorb fluid (rice, buckwheat, and barley), cook them in defatted, perhaps reduced-sodium, chicken or beef broth. Risotto, an Italian rice specialty, typically is prepared by cooking arborio or white short-grain rice in broth, along with herbs and other ingredients.
  • Blend herbs, spices, sun-dried tomatoes, and shredded cheese into bread dough before baking it.
  • Experiment with herbs and spices: basil, chives, cilantro, rosemary, garlic, ginger, caraway, cumin.
  • Sharpen up the flavor with cheese. Add a little Parmesan, sharp Cheddar, Romano, feta, Asiago, or blue cheese-on vegetables, rice, or pasta.
  • Intensify flavor with dried ingredients: sun-dried tomatoes, dried mushrooms, dried cranberries, dried apricots, dried plums (prunes), dried figs, and red pepper flakes. Plump sun-dried tomatoes and dried mushrooms in broth or cooking wine, and dried cranberries or dried plums in apple juice.
  • Marinate with tangy, sweet, or savory sauces to infuse flavor from the outside in.
  • Use a little nut oil: hazelnut, almond, or walnut oil. A little drizzle will do!
