Tips to make vegetables taste amazing
Adding vegetables to the diet can sound overwhelming and unappealing if you are not used to eating them every day. Here are some tips to make vegetables not only tolerable, but delicious.
Roast in the oven. Roasting vegetables in the oven instead of steaming or boiling adds so much flavor and texture. The dry heat allows vegetables to brown, caramelize, and get nice and crispy.
Saute or stir fry. Sauteing vegetables with a little oil over high heat also allows vegetables to brown nicely. Also, sauteed vegetables are crunchier than boiled or steamed. I love to add a drizzle of sesame oil and tamari when my sauteed vegetables are done cooking for even more flavor!
Finely chop raw vegetables. For some reason, people love chopped salads (me included!). I would much rather eat a shredded kale salad than munch on large, chewy leaves of kale. I love salad bars that mix and chop all your ingredients well. You get all the goodies in one bite!
Add a delicious sauce or dressing. Sauces and dressings are the secret to making even bland steamed vegetables taste delicious. They are surprisingly easy to make at home and customize. This sesame ginger tahini sauce is hands down my new favorite to pair with broccoli.
