Cooking Hacks That Can Make Your Life a Whole Lot Easier

Blanching vegetables

Blanching is steaming or boiling food for 2 or 3 minutes. This method helps to keep vegetables fresh and to make them soft. For example, before baking or frying, boil asparagus in water for a few minutes. You can blanch almost anything: tomatoes (to peel them easier), onions, or broccoli.
