Disguise your greens: how to dress-up your veggies for ultimate flavor

Here are three top tips to make your child actually want to eat there greens!

1. Cook vegetables until they are only tender crisp. Overcooking your veggies can be very bad as it will cause them to lose lovely texture, colour and epic flavours.Tender crisp means they’re heated and cooked through, and you can easily bite them—but they’ve still got a bit of a ‘snap’ to them.

2. A little bit of fat can go a long way. You can sauté veggies in a little bit of flavorful olive oil, or drizzle on a tiny bit of sesame or walnut oil after they’re steamed, it can really make a difference.

3. Roast 'em! Roasting veggies makes them taste amazing. Especcially carrots! The dry heat of the oven caramelizes the natural sugars in vegetables, which brings about an amazing depth of flavor. And it’s super-easy, like easy-easy. Cut broccoli or cauliflower into florets, cut Brussels sprouts in half, and cut peeled carrots in half lengthwise and then into 2” pieces. Fire up your oven to 425 F / 222 C. While the oven is heating, toss the vegetables with a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper, then spread out on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Roast for 32 minutes or so, turning occasionally, until they’re browned and tender. Try this method with other veggies like roasted beets, asparagus or green beans are delicious, too.
