Chef Tip of the Week – ‘Don’t over cook your Greens’
Here’s our very first Chefs Tip for our blog and it’s a simple, yet commonly unknown to most people, on how to easily cook the best green vegetables at home.
How to cook your greens
For 300 grams of greens, bring approximately 4L of water to the boil. Add your greens and cook for no more than 45-60 seconds. Remove the vegetables from the boiling water and drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice and a pinch of salt. It’s as simple as that!
Try it out, they taste amazing and bring out the colour of the greens so they are vibrant and fresh. They still have a crisp snap to them and a nice and hot served straight away. Most people steam there veggies for up to 10 minutes making them lose there colour (and also some good nutrients) and makes them soft.
Give this method a try, we guarantee you wont go back to the old way you cook your greens!
