How to spice up your vegetables?
➡️ Crispy baked vegetables
Basically, you can compare it to the famous “potatoes” of your favorite fast food chain. To make your vegetables sooo crousty, dice them up and drizzle them with olive oil. Place them on a baking sheet before sliding them into a preheated oven. In addition to being crispier, your vegetables will also cook faster!
➡️ Seasonal vegetables for more taste
Seasonal produce is best for a ton of good reasons, including this one: it tastes better! They taste better when they’re in season, since they haven’t been forced to grow faster or in weather conditions that aren’t suitable for them. On top of that, seasonal vegetables are cheaper!
