With all the fuss about using vegetable oils in cooking, it’s easy to overlook the importance of using the right kind of oil to do it.
For those of us who prefer to cook without using oils at all, you may be surprised to find that there’s a whole range of different ways to cook using the plant-based oils.
Here’s our guide to the different ways you can cook with green leafy vegetables.
The “low-fat” way – The “natural” way to cook vegetables is to cook them in butter or margarine, which means that the fat content of the food is reduced.
That can mean that the fats are more easily absorbed by the body and the taste is better, but it’s also more likely to result in a greasy, bland meal.
You’ll still get some of the same flavours as if you were cooking in butter, but the fats will be much lower in calories.
But there are a few ways to ensure that this is not the case.
If you’re looking for a way to use less fat in your cooking, try cooking with a vegetable oil substitute, such as olive oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, or peanut oil.
This will reduce the amount of fat in the finished product.
This method is best for smaller quantities of food, as it takes longer to cook, and it won’t reduce the taste of the dish.
You can also cook in a pot of water if you need to save time or reduce the cooking time of a dish.
The non-starchy, flaky way – Another way to eat a green leaf vegetable is to grill it.
Grilling leaves is easier than frying it, and there are fewer calories to burn when cooking with vegetable oils.
This is one of the ways to make sure that you’re not using a vegetable that’s been stored in the fridge for too long, or that is high in fat.
Grilled leafy vegetable recipes are usually cooked in oil rather than butter, so the cooking process takes a little longer, and the resulting dish is less fluffy.
You may also want to use olive oil instead of butter if you’re making more than a handful of the vegetable at a time.
This means that your vegetable may be a bit thinner in colour and texture than a butter-grilled leaf.
But if you can’t find olive oil at your local supermarket, you can buy it online, or try cooking it in a small saucepan of vegetable oil.
The flaky, crunchy way – If you’ve never used a vegetable peeler before, it may be hard to appreciate how flaky and crunchy green leaf vegetables can be.
They’re not quite as easy to peel as potatoes or carrots, but they do have a texture that’s just like an egg.
You won’t be able to fully peel your vegetables in this way, but you can easily get them to soften, and if you don’t let them cook in too long they’ll just fall apart.
You could also try cooking your vegetables with a little water, if you want to avoid using a large pot.
The cooking time will depend on how thick your vegetable is, and how thick the vegetables are cooked in, so it’s important to cook your green leafed vegetables in a big pot.
You might be able just to get them a little crispy before you start cooking them, but when they’re ready, you should be able take them out of the water, and then just put them in a saucepan and cook them for around two minutes, until they’re completely cooked through.
The crunchy, flakiness way – This is the most common way to get your green vegetables crispy.
The flavour of green leafs can be a little bit off-putting, so this method is ideal if you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth.
You will need to cook the vegetable in a little more oil than usual, so don’t be surprised if you end up with a slightly oily dish.
This technique takes a lot longer than frying, but is easier to control.
It’s also a bit more expensive, as the oil will usually have to be purchased separately.
If your vegetable isn’t too flaky when you cook it, you’ll be able a good crispier result.
You should also be aware that the oils that you’ll need to use to cook this method won’t always be available in your supermarket.
To ensure that you have enough oil to get you through the process, check the availability of your local supermarkets and supermarkets with the word “green” in the name.
You’re also encouraged to check the health warnings on products you’re buying.
If the oil isn’t available, you could always cook your vegetables by hand in a slow cooker or oven.
You’d be surprised how well it works.
You need to start with a small quantity of your vegetables, and add a bit each time you cook them.
You don’t need to add more oil as you cook
