What cooking method do you recommend for leafy veggies?

 

Q. Are leafy veggies when fried as good for you when you boil them?

 

A. Although boiling is a common method for preparing vegetables, this method may reduce the nutrient content of vegetables, specifically water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C and phenols. Research has shown that sautéing vegetables in olive oil, including leafy greens, is recommended over boiling or deep frying to preserve nutrients in vegetables without adding too many calories.
