Do you know how to get the best of nutrients from your vegetables? No?.... Let me tell you how. When you want to prepare your vegetables, boil your meat, fish or whatever you would like to add to it. Prepare your Stew or your melon for the vegetable till its done. Put of the cooker and add you sliced and washed vegetables. Cover the pot with its lid for a few minutes so your vegetable can start a bit. (remember your cooker must have been turned off) Then stir together and serve hot. This way, you get to enjoy all the nutrients available in your vegetable without it been reduced by too much application of heat.
