How to Cook Vegetables

At HNT, we always emphasize the importance of eating your veggies, but many times, people ask, "How do I cook them?". This is especially true with vegetables that are unfamiliar.

Check out eatingwell.com's guide to cooking 20 vegetables. You'll learn how to shop for, prepare and cook vegetables. It will tell you how to microwave, roast, saute, braise, or steam. Be adventurous and try something you've never eaten before.

We encourage you to try new recipes and eat a variety of different kinds and colors of vegetables. Vegetables are low in calorie density and may help to prevent weight gain. The vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals in vegetables may even protect you against cancer. Remember to use the plate method where 1/2 of your plate should be filled with veggies.

Enjoy your veggies!
