6 Easy Homemade Low Fat Diet Vegetable Recipes

Here you also have many options with the same vegetable. The difference is in the way you cut the green bean: thin and long for a more delicate texture (my favorite), or short and diagonal for a crunchier texture. Just wash, clean and trim the beans.

VARIATION-6

Roasted Vegetables Recipe

INSTRUCTIONS

1 In summer we usually grill the vegetables or eat them raw just as they are. In winter, we enjoy eating roasted veggies, as a main course topped with some light feta or ricotta cheese, or as an addition to a hummus sandwich or to accompany a dish of roasted chicken.

2 In any case, roasting the vegetables intensifies their flavors and brings out their natural sweetness.

3 I’m a big advocate of eating veggies raw, sauteed or steamed, but sometimes roasting can add a very different character, and can make the veggies more interesting, with a kind of attitude: crisp, caramelized, and with a nice color.

4 The best candidates for roasting are: garlic, onions, eggplants, peppers (red, yellow, green, orange), zucchinis, potatoes and sweet potatoes.
