Health Tip: Adding Aroma to Your Dishes

(HealthDay News) -- Aromatic vegetables can offer plenty of nutrients and flavor to your favorite dishes. Examples include garlic, onions, peppers, chiles or ginger.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Opting for fresh veggies instead of frozen, which may be watery.
  • Prepping aromatics on the weekend so they're ready to use during the week.
  • Using care when working with onions and hot peppers to avoid irritation from their oils.
  • Sweating vegetables in a bit of water, juice or broth. Skip the oils and butter.
