I love to make parchment paper packets full of delicious veggies and herbs. When you open the packet, the aroma is wonderful. Don't be intimidated by the technique because it's really not that difficult! It really cuts down on the clean-up, also.

8Beginning with either side, make a fold about 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide along the length. Repeat (same side.)

9Holding the fold, go up about an inch and fold again; repeat moving and folding all the way around to the end (you will have a half-moon shape when finished.)
