Health Tip: Saut&eacute Your Veggies

(HealthDay News) — Sautéing is a healthier alternative to frying, and it’s a simple technique to master.

The American Heart Association explains how:

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Using broth or water, heat a tablespoon or two in the bottom of the skillet.
  • Wait for the water or broth to begin to bubble.
  • Slice your favorite veggies, then add them to the bubbling liquid.
  • Cook them for five minutes, stirring continuously as they cook. Add extra liquid if needed.
  • Cook meat the same way using nonstick cooking spray. Brown lightly on each side, then add the liquid and finish cooking.
