Methods to Cook Vegetables
Steaming - Using steam to cook food. There are items around the kitchen called a food steamer which is used to steam food. Steaming does not use fats to cook vegetables which is healthier, though there may be a loss of vitamins.
Blanching - Quickly scalding food in boiling water then after some time moving it into chilled water. This helps avoid loss of vitamins and helps to keep flavour and color.
Sauteeing - A form of dry heat cooking used to cook food quickly, usually done with a small amount of fat in a pan. Sometimes it's best to cook your food for a short to avoid loss of vitamins, which is what makes this a viable method.
Roasting - Cooking a piece of food over time, generally in an oven or open flame and is enveloped in hot air which cooks all sides of the food evenly. This enhances flavour, usually from the outside caramelizing.
Microwaving - Placing an item of food in the microwave to heat and cook it. This may create steam but it's easy and doesn't use fats. This may leave cold or hot spots in the meal / vegetable though.
