Fix-It Cook

If your dish is too salty...

Make topped toasts (also called crostini). Every ingredient is a star when placed on garlic-rubbed toast, and bold flavors are balanced out by the bread.

If you burn meat...

You meant to make barbecue, right? Salvage what you can, and mix it with a quickie BBQ sauce (ketchup, molasses, and vinegar). Call it smoked, and it’s suddenly intentional.

If you burn vegetables...

Turn them into a side dish. In the Mediterranean, charred vegetables are drizzled with good olive oil and enjoyed as a delicacy. Soft vegetables, like eggplant, tomatoes, and zucchini, can become a version of baba ghanoush. Mix together the flesh, a little of the skin, olive oil, and tahini for a smoky dip.
