Dana recommended this technique a couple months ago after reading Adler's book, An Everlasting Meal, but I only recently got around to watching the video, which shows how simple and efficient it is to wash, peel and roast or boil a large number of vegetables at once.
Although I do occasionally take the time immediately after shopping to precook some of my vegetables, particularly winter greens, I am inspired to make it a more regular habit. Watching this video, I am reminded of how much more soothing it is to rinse, chop, blanch and roast during an empty weekend afternoon than during a rushed 30 minutes after a long day at work.
