4 Ways to Give Healthy Food an Extra Flavor Boost
- Give veggies a sweeter, smokier flavor by brushing them lightly with oil and a sprinkle of herbs, then roasting in the oven at 450 degrees.
- Using a bit of oil, slowly caramelize onions in a pan over low heat. Use the sweet, rich sauce over a meat or poultry dish.
- Enliven flavors by tossing in a variety of colorful peppers or hot pepper sauce, citrus juice, pomegranate seeds, or herbs such as cilantro into your entrees, salads, and side dishes.
- Opt for condiments with less sugar, such as fresh salsa, tapenade, horseradish, mustard, been puree, or wasabi.
