12 KITCHEN TIPS FOR THE HEALTHY COOK

It’s not just what you eat, but how you prep and cook food, that can increase your intake of nutrients, not to mention keeping fat to a minimum. Our favourite food writers, restaurateurs and cooks dish up their top techniques for a healthier kitchen…

1 STIR-FRYING

Frying veg, fish, chicken or meat in a wok over a high heat – stirring constantly to avoid burning.

WHY IT’S HEALTHY

Cooking quickly over a high heat means veg retain their nutrients, often lost in processes such as boiling. Using just a little oil instead of the large amounts used in shallow or deep frying keeps total fat to a minimum.

HFG KNOW-HOW

Don’t overcrowd the pan; better to cook in batches, to keep veg tender-crisp.

FOOD WRITER CHING-HE HUANG SAYS:
