Mistakes To Avoid While Cooking Frozen Vegetables

Cooking with frozen vegetables can be tricky, especially if you are used to fresh ones. Swipe to know some of the most common mistakes.
  • Not Thawing

    Thawing helps in cooking the vegetables evenly and prevents excess moisture in the dish.
  • Skipping Seasoning

    Fresh veggies contain natural sweetness and crunch, unlike the frozen ones. Adding extra seasoning may help enhance the flavour of the latter kind.
  • Overcooking

    Frozen vegetables cook way faster than fresh ones, and heating them for too long may make them mushy.
  • Cooking All Veggies

    Some vegetables like carrots, sweet corn, etc., don't need to be cooked but only brought to room temperature.
  • Not Drying

    Using the vegetables directly after thawing would make them soggy. Pat them dry to retain their crunch.
