Looking around pinterest one day, I noticed a couple different cooking ‘cheat’ sheets. I though, “What a great idea!” Often I am wondering how long to cook a veggie, especially when it comes down to roasting or baking it. I don’t particularly like microwaving veggies, but sometimes when you are in a time crunch that is the only way. Steaming is another great option, and is usually pretty quick as well. Then there is boiling, which I use often for things like potatoes. My favorite way to cook veggies is with roasting though. It’s so simple, and everything always turns out delicious. Toss with a little extra virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper and you are good to go. You can dress things up with lemon juice, or zest (I love that word!), or add brown sugar to things like carrots or sweet potatoes. The options are endless and there are recipes out there for everything!
So, I put together this Veggie Cooking Cheat Sheet as a handy reference to keep on hand. I tried to include the most popular veggies, but I know there are a few left out as well. What is your favorite vegetable to cook and how do you cook it?
