Veggies [should always be] welcomed in one’s diet. But knowing the proper way to cook them may cause trepidation towards these innocent ingredients. Luckily enough, the kind-hearts at Domestic Superhero have come up with a quick cheat sheet that will eliminate the guesswork and allow you more time to enjoy some of the most popular vegetables.
Most veggies are best enjoyed when roasted, as roasting naturally enhances their flavour and has the added benefit of avoiding nutrient loss that may occur during boiling. It’s always good to coat with a little (olive) oil so as to reduce water loss during roasting and maintain moist, evenly cooked veggies. This is especially important for potatoes and sweet potatoes. Steaming is also a great option and much preferred to boiling , so grab an in expensive steaming basket when next you visit the store.
There are many recipes out there but some of the simplest include tossing your vegetables in olive oil, S&P, lime/lemon juice, and topping with your favourite herbs. A good home-made vinaigrette is always a good choice. Have fun with it.
