Vegetables in a grocery store, Paris, France.

I laugh when I think about my mom saying “eat your vegetables”. She always overcooked them. I hated vegetables. Then when I went to college and got my first apartment, I had to cook for myself. I tried different things and found I loved vegetables but they had to be cooked correctly. Some tips I use:
a. Don’t overcook them
b. Mix up different types for flavor
c. Add spices
d. Make soups with them (and keep the salt levels down)
e. Place them over pasta
f. Make a hero sandwich with vegetables
Try new things and be inventive
