The preparation method is not always mentioned correct on the packaging, hence a lot of consumers do not know how to use frozen vegetables in their daily menu. Please read our tips how to prepare frozen vegetables wisely, so you can serve some tasty vegetables in no time:
- Vegetables in tiny pieces (like peas, beans, diced carrots, sweet corn, etc…): do not boil. Fry a shallot or melt butter/oil in a pan. Add the vegetables and let simmer for 5 to 7 min.
- If you rather steam or bring your vegetables to the boil anyway, do not boil too long. Bring salted water to the boil. Put the frozen vegetables in the water until the water starts to boil again. Drain. Season with salt and pepper, and if you wish with other herbs.
- Vegetables which are a bit bigger (like diced carrot 20x20 or salsify): prepare as mentioned above. Bring to the boil, put the frozen vegetables in the water until the water starts to boil again. Boil fora n extra 1 or 2 minutes. Taste if OK and drain when al dente. Eat the vegetables pure, with a pinch of salt and pepper, or fry in a pan with butter or oil.
- All frozen vegetables are perfect for stew, sauces and soups.
