Don’t you hate it when your broccoli turn into a shriveled brown mess? Today’s Kitchen Tip comes from Anna Buckley, from Melbourne Australia. Anna tells us how we can get bright green broccoli and keep it that way:
“Green vegetables such as broccoli and beans can sometimes turn a rather dull olive-green when added to cooked dishes. To stop this zap vegetables in microwave for 1 min. then add to pan. They will keep their bright green color. Traditionally the Chinese blanched greens in boiling water with bi-carb soda added. Works well for Thai curries, stews and warm salads.”
I don’t know about you, but I will definitely try this the next time I make stir fry. I love pretty food and this tip will come in handy!
