  • wait...let me ask mummy!! no, she doesn't. Does it help?
  • I rarely add salt to anything. I steam my veggies in the microwave
  • hahaha...how did you know that I've just boiled vegetables?....and, NO, I don't. I was originally not impressed when my SO did that but I've found that it's the best and tastiest way to go about....
  • I would salt the water to make it hotter when it boils but not for taste. I would season again after they come out of the water if needed. I think boiling veggies takes some of the nutritional value from them so I tend to sauté, grill or steam.
  • I put salt in the water they are bioling in!
  • No, I steam most of my vegetables
  • Why would you boil your vegetables? That kills them. You gently steam them on a rack in a pan with a minimum of water..you steam them till they are just barely al dente and have retained their color. I never put salt in any water except when I "boil" pasta. :) ((hugs))
  • I use to spice before and during cooking. Now I wait until afterwards as salt dries out the meat during cooking.
  • No I have enough bad habbits!!
  • No, I usually don’t put salt on my foods.
  • Some vegetable already have some salt in it, beside I like the unsalted and natural flavor of vegetables.
  • I never add salt to anything I cook.Thanx for asking.
  • Yes I usually do. +5 good question
  • No, I never add salt to anything until I have tasted it. You can always add more, but you can't take it out. Also, I never boil vegetables. Try sauteing them in just a little peanut oil or other non-hydrogenated oil with a little garlic, onion, maybe some bell peppers. Then cover the pan or pot tightly and turn down the heat to medium/low. Let them steam for 5-10 minutes depending on how soft you want them. This holds the flavor and nutrition in. When you boil them, you end up with most of the nourishment in the water. Of course, with tough greens like mustard greens, this doesn't work so well, but even then, use as little water as possible.

  • Everything but corn...for some reason salt seems to make corn hard.
  • YES GARLIC SALT TO CUT DOWN THE BOILING SO THE WATER DOES'NT GO OVER AND AT THE SAME TIME I DROP IT TO 7 TO KEEP IT AT A LOW BOILING TEMPERATURE FOR 5 MORE MINUTES. GARLIC IS VERY GOOD FOR PEOPLE.
  • Yes... I much prefer the salted (and peppered and seasoned salt) flavored meats. (Well, except Lunch Meats, but are they considered "meats"? LOL)
  • Enough salt in the food I eat
  • nahh. down south we use a spicy seasoning called Tony's.......salt is in it tho...i put tht junk on EVERYTHINGG. lol =)
  • No, I am not a big salt eater. I do not add it to anything really, except french fries. And not a lot. My bf on the other hand..... lol
  • pretty much. i even add it to my soups. the only exception is my cereal. that would be gross.
  • I rarely boil any vegetables. I do boil potatoes sometimes and I will add water as the salt will get right into the potatoes and you will use less salt that way. But I don't think there is any other veggie I boil. I steam, grill, roast, or stir fry most.
  • Yes, I do add little salt. It gives taste and vegetables will be fresher!
