I have been busy working on a new "Clean Eating" series of classes that I will be teaching over the summer. One of the topics will be just how easy it is to cook vegetables. You can put all vegetables into two categories; cooked or raw. All vegetables can be eaten either cooked or raw or both. The easiest way to cook vegetables is to just boil them. Yes, vegetables can also be enjoyed steamed, grilled, sauté, stewed, pan fried and on and on. But for the beginner and those in a hurry, boiling is a great option.
Place a large pot of water onto high heat.
As water heats you can prep the vegetables.
Peel corn and break in half.
Wash off the zucchini.
When water begins to boil, add corn and zucchini.
Boil vegetables for 10-12 minutes.
While vegetables are cooking you can clean the green beans.
Pull the stems off of the beans.
After the corn and zucchini have been boiling for about 11 minutes, add the beans to the pot.
Bring water back to a boil.
Boil the green beans for another 3 minutes.
Pull out a green bean and bite into it to make sure the beans are cooked to your liking.
