Health Tip: Adding Aroma to Your Dishes

Aromatic vegetables can offer plenty of nutrients and flavor to your favorite dishes. Examples include garlic, onions, peppers, chiles or ginger.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Opting for fresh veggies instead of frozen, which may be watery.
  • Prepping aromatics on the weekend so they’re ready to use during the week.
  • Using care when working with onions and hot peppers to avoid irritation from their oils.
  • Sweating vegetables in a bit of water, juice or broth. Skip the oils and butter.
