I’ll be honest with you: I’m not going to eat things that I don’t love. I’m a grown up. I know what’s good for me, but I also choose to eat foods that satisfy my palate.
I love making vegetables taste AMAZING, so here are some of my favourite ways:
Grill them. Drizzle first with olive oil, salt, pepper, and/or seasoning of your choice. Nearly any vegetable can be grilled from brussel sprouts to kale.
Sauté them. Heat a pan with olive oil, add vegetables, season with salt, pepper, and any other seasoning you choose. I’m a HUGE fan of adding crushed or minced garlic to the pan and letting it brown before adding the vegetables to flavour the oil. SO GOOD!
Roast them. This is one of the easiest ways to prepare vegetables because it tends to work for a variety all at once. Same process: toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, seasoning of choice, and arrange in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Bake at around 175 – 190 (Gas mark 4 - 5) until everything starts to brown. It doesn’t get easier than that!
What’s your favourite way to prepare veggies? I’m always looking for new, delicious ideas!
Here’s to a healthy week full of tasty veggies!
