Trans­form it!


Roasted, stir-fried, steamed, sautéed or raw: there are many ways to eat a veg­etable, and us­ing dif­fer­ent cook­ing meth­ods can trans­form the taste and turn a loathed food into a loved one. ‘As a rule, roast­ing makes veg sweeter and in­ten­si­fies the flavour, while steam­ing makes the taste more gen­tle. Bak­ing makes it softer, while stir-fry­ing keeps the crunch,’ says Sam. So it’s time to ex­per­i­ment and see if your young­ster en­joys his veg more when it’s cooked in a dif­fer­ent way. And once you’ve worked out whether he prefers a strong or gen­tle taste, a crunchy or soft tex­ture, you’ll be able to of­fer him new, un­tried veg in a form that he’s most likely to love.

Make a note of what he likes and dis­likes, and you’ll prob­a­bly see a pat­tern of pre­ferred tastes and tex­tures emerge.
