Saving water

You know how you’re meant to lightly cook your vegetables so they retain their colour and crunch, because that means they also retain their goodness, right?

But you put some peas and carrots on to boil then forget about them because you get distracted by Nuush’s beautiful Instagram piccies or you can’t help going for a run?

Well, don’t fear, all is not lost!

Just save the water they were cooked in, freeze it and use it in soups, stews and risottos. It’ll have all the nutrients that came out of the veg, so you won’t miss out on all their healthy vibes!
