But did you know that cooking your vegetables in extra virgin olive oil increase the health properties of the olive oil?
Cooking in evoo conserves and increases the phenolic compounds of vegetables. Cooking veggies in fat also increases absorption of some of other compounds important to health.
If you’re anything like me and find steamed veggies a bit boring, then this is a win win win!
Not only does the olive oil makes your veggies taste better, it makes them healthier!
These veggies work well in the frying pan: Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, green beans, asparagus, corn, onion, spinach, capsicum, mushrooms, snow peas, zucchini, eggplant, tomato and just about any other veg (maybe not cucumber…)
