    Vegetable packets are great for using up leftover bits in the fridge: carrots, celery, mushrooms, tomatoes...  They are cooking when you hear them sizzle, and are done when you can't hear them any longer.  They stay very hot in the packets, and can even be taken off early and left to finish off heat.
