"Boil 'N Fry" is a two-step cooking method employed in Guyana to cook a variety of dishes, especially ground provisions (root vegetables). The vegetables are peeled, cut into large chunks or left whole and boiled in salted water. Once drained, they are fried (sautéed) with aromatics and fresh herbs such as onions, garlic, tomatoes, thyme, celery, parsley and hot peppers.When cooked this way, root vegetables are enjoyed as breakfast, lunch or dinner meals. They often are, and can be eaten alone, or be accompanied by meat or seafood dishes. Fried "sautéed" salt fish is a regular accompaniment.
