More Cooking Methods
Looking for a change of pace with your cooking methods? While roasting is our star technique, here are four other quick and easy ways to bring your Normandy veggies to life.
Steaming: Place veggies in a steam basket over a pot of boiling water. Cover the pot and let it steam for about 5 minutes or until tender to your preference. Be careful not to overcook it to avoid mushiness. Your veggies are now ready to be seasoned and enjoyed!
Microwaving: Arrange the veggies in a microwave-safe dish, add a splash of water, and cover. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, stirring halfway through for even cooking. Season as desired and serve warm.
Sautéing: Heat a pan over medium heat and add a bit of oil. Add your veggies and stir frequently for about 10 minutes until they’re golden brown and tender. A touch of your favorite spices can add a delightful twist.
Air Frying: Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss your veggies in a bit of oil and your chosen seasonings. Arrange in a single layer in the fryer basket, then cook for 10-12 minutes until crispy, shaking the basket halfway through.
