Tips for Making These Easy Veggie Recipes:

  1. When making vegetables, always put a little lemon on them (this works the best on green vegetables). It brings out flavor and cuts fat.
  2. When frying eggplant, slice and salt well. Let set for one hour. Drain on absorbent paper. This removes excess water from eggplant.
  3. Vegetables should be refrozen only if they contain plenty of ice crystals and still have a firm-to-hard core of ice in the center. Spoiled vegetables can be dangerous.
  4. To roast and peel peppers, cut a small slit in the pepper close to the stem end so that the steam can escape. Put peppers on a baking sheet and put directly under the broiler or on a screen on the top of the stove. They can also be plunged into hot vegetable oil to loosen the skins.
  5. To keep garden peas out of the pod looking fresh and beautifully green simply soak them over-night in a bucket of water with some ordinary baking soda mixed in.
