Texture Matters

Texture preferences play a big role in the likability of many foods, including vegetables. Rubbery green beans or soggy broccoli can be a real turn off while a beet that’s tender without being mushy can increase likability. These tips can help you get the right texture for different types of veggies.

Make Vegetables Convenient

The holiday season comes with jam-packed schedules. You might have more time to carefully prepare vegetables for special celebrations, but the rest of the time people need convenience. Keeping other forms of vegetables on hand like frozen mixed veggies, canned corn, jarred Italian sauces, vegetable juice, and veggie-based soups can help people meet daily veggie goals. Make the most of your time with these tips for preparing and cooking veggies.
