We always save the "pot likker" or cooking juices/water from our veggies and either drink it right away or add it to a container in the freezer so that we can make a good broth for soups and stews.

Great idea! I used to do this with leftover vegetables, but my kids have become such good veggie eaters, we rarely have leftovers! Not such a bad problem to have. . .

You both sure know how to make a future Registered Dietitian proud ^_^

Lately, we have been microwave steaming certain veggies (broccoli, peas...), using very little liquid, and have been really pleased with the healthy results. But, nothing beats oven roasted or grilled asparagus!

Happy & Healthy Gardening and Cooking,
Diana

I agree, roasted or grilled is the best! I like to lightly steam them, then toss them with tomatoes, sauteed onions, and garlic in a little olive oil. Mmm, yummy! And to think, my mom had to slather cheese sauce on everything to get us to eat it when we were kids. LOL
