Cooking in the dishwasher: eggs with tomato and herbs
Cooking in the dishwasher is really simple and is worth trying.
It’s an ecological way to cook if you use the heat washing water while you wash the dirty dishes . Cooking in the dishwasher tastes and textures are the best you can have, much better respect to traditional techniques. In order to cook in a safe way and without risks do not forget to seal food in glass jars hermetically closed or in vacuum bags suitable for cooking .
If you want to learn more, view my book “Cucinare in lavastoviglie” ( Gribaudo ) also available in Spanish and hopefully soon also in English and German .
Cooking in the dishwasher is different from boiling, a steaming or any other conventional technique because it is a low-temperature cooking . In fact washing programs wash/cook in a temperature range between 55 and 75 °C.
If you never tried before, as a first experiment try cooking eggs: simple and highly satisfying .
For example, try the egg with diced tomatoes and herbs. Recipe for 4 people.
4 organic eggs
250g ripe tomato
1 sprig of fresh oregano
1 sprig of rosemary
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
Wash the tomatoes and cut them into small cubes. Divide the diced tomatoes into 4 small jars. Open an egg in each jar then add the herbs, a spoon of olive oil , salt and pepper. Tightly close the jars and place in the dishwasher in the empty space between your dirty dishes . Insert the detergent as usual and start the Intensive washing program. At the end of the washing program, after about two hours and a half, open the dishwasher and enjoy the eggs with slices of toasted bread. If you do not want to consume immediately, store it in the refrigerator and heat in the microwave (without lid) for a few seconds. The result is a creamy egg yolk and white thick but not chewy .
