Default Cinderella foods

This was inspired by Fuzzy's comment in the hummus thread, to wit: chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are pretty dull fare, but when transformed into hummus they are delicious. What other plain-jane foods do you turn into royal fare with a sprinkling of culinary magic?

Turkey! Cooked normally, meh.

But Smoked, or cooked in an oven with pats of butter, lemon wedges and fresh thyme stuffed in the cavity and under the skin--T-day magic!

The biggest mistake people make with Turkey is stuffing it, lemon wedges and thyme in the cavity are perfect, it'll cook from the outside in and the lemon and thyme will penetrate the bird giving more flavour. Another good tip is to seperate the skin gently from the bird and get softened butter underneath it (be careful not to break the sin though!). Self-basting bird.

Tofu. About the blandest of the bland on its own, but it is a star in the right dishes, once it has soaked up the flavours of a stir fry, soup, or whatever.

This is exactly what I do with the butter, lift the skin up slide a few pats of butter and set to bake. My Thanksgiving feast last year is still talked about

*sigh*

I keep wanting to rep you for your insightful replies, but apparently I need to whore out the reputation a little more before before giving it to you again. Consider this repped in absentia.

Potatoes.

Whether mashed, baked, fried or any which way you choose, I doctor the hell out of them to yummy goodness.
