how do I cook...?

Whether you’re a cooking newbie or an old pro, we all come across veggies from time to time that we’ve never prepared before. Or maybe you want to cook up an old favorite in a different way and aren’t sure how to go about it. Either way, this infographic has you covered!

I love that it has cooking times for a whole array of preparations. The only thing that would make this better would be marinating times for the veggies on this list that you can serve raw. One of my favorite ways to eat raw broccoli used to be raw in an olive oil marinade. Just for kicks, here’s that recipe!

Garlicky Balsamic Raw Broccoli

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups broccoli florets

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic, and salt to make the marinade.
  2. Toss the broccoli in the marinade, and let it sit for at least 15 minutes before serving. If you can wait 20 minutes, even better! The marinade softens the broccoli perfectly without totally taking away the crunch!
