The Basics of Oil-Free Cooking

Cooking without oil may seem like a challenge at first, but with the right techniques, you can achieve flavorful results without sacrificing taste or texture. The key is to focus on using natural ingredients to enhance the flavor of your dishes. Instead of relying on oil for sautéing, try using vegetable broth, water, or citrus juice to prevent sticking and add moisture. Roasting and baking are also excellent methods for cooking without oil, as they allow the natural sugars in vegetables to caramelize and intensify in flavor. By mastering these techniques, you’ll soon discover that oil-free cooking is not only healthier but also more delicious.
