Either if you are a person who enjoys veggies or you just starting to incorporate more of them into your lifestyle, this is the place for you. Today, we will give you some ideas on how to eat veggie without it being tasteless or boring, it doesn’t have to be that way, believe us.
First of all, we know how importanat veggies are in our life because they have so many minerals, vitamins and nutrients they give to our bodies, besides that, they help us to stay full for a longer period of time when we eat them which causes to eat less and not crave that junkie food.
Now, Let’s go over the different methods of cooking vegetables and pick up some recipe ideas along the way.
1. Raw Veggies
Sometimes the best way to enjoy vegetables is to not cook them at all. Even when I am prepping veggies for cooking, I always munch on a few pieces of raw. That’s the way you really taste the vegetable in its natural state and keep all those nutrients. Of course, not cooking veggies doesn’t mean you have to just eat them plain like a rabbit. You can squeeze on them, some lemon, vinegar, and/or mustard, that will give your veggie great taste.
2. Boiling Veggies
Boiling is an easy and fast way to get crisp, bright veggies, though you need to do it right or they could end up gray and mushy with no nutrients left inside them. The key is to make sure the vegetables spend the minimum amount of time necessary in the boiling water. You can add a pinch of salt when the water is boiling so you veggies soak up that water and there is no need to add unnecessary salt when they are done.
3. Roasting and Baking Veggies
Roasting veggies is probably the easiest way to cook them. It’s also the way I suggest preparing a vegetable if you are worried you won’t like it. Roasting vegetables involves caramelizing them in a hot oven. The natural sugars of the veggies come out leading to a sweet, savory intense flavor that is like no other. Besides, they will end up crunchy and who doesn’t enjoy some crunchy sound when eating?
