When you boil vegetables, a lot of nutritional value gets lost in the water; when you fry them in a pan and they soak up the fat in the oil or butter.
Boost the flavor AND get the most nutrients out of your veggies with these proven-healthy cooking methods:
Some easy-to-grill veg varieties include mushrooms, asparagus and bell peppers, but nothing’s off limits.
Fast fact: You can grill vegetables directly on the grill or wrapped in tinfoil, without adding extra oil or fats.
Try this: For a tasty take on salad, drizzle a head of romaine lettuce with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and grill for 5 minutes.
This is one of the healthiest ways to cook vegetables.
Fast fact: Because the dry heat softens vegetables while boosting the flavor naturally, you don’t need butter or oil!
Try this: Toss seasonal vegetables in olive oil, salt and pepper and spread on a baking sheet. Roast at 375 degrees for 45 minutes, flipping half-way through.
Want vegetables to maintain more texture, flavor and nutrients? Full-steam ahead!
Fast fact: Steaming is the best way to hold onto that veggie crunch!
Try this: Grab your favorites, throw them in a steamer for a few minutes, and then toss them in olive oil and lemon juice for added health benefits.
