4 ways to make vegetables taste good

Vegetables are good for us, but they don't exactly tantalize your taste buds. Do you want your veggies filled with flavor as well as nutrients? Food blogger Joanie Simon has four ways to make your veggies taste better and she’s sharing them with Donna Ruko.

1.  Massage Your Greens

Soak your greens in hot water and massage them for about two minutes. This is going to do a great job of breaking down those cellular walls just to soften it up. Now, rinse in cold water, dry off, and you've got a more cushy kale.

2.  Bake with a Cooling Rack

Use a cooling rack in the oven when you roast. By elevating veggies you will evenly cook them and they won't get soggy.

3.  Use Oil Wisely

Fat is flavor, but you don't want to overdo it. Too much oil gives you heavy and unhealthy veggies. A good rule of thumb is one tablespoon of olive oil to 1 pound of vegetables.

4.  Add Fruit

A little bit of natural sweetness with fruit with make them go down much easier. Try roasting apples with Brussels sprouts or carrots with oranges.
