I stir fry most of my veggies. I add light seasoning and keep it crisp. Always tasty, always healthy. :-)

I just throw a little EVOO in a pan, I add the spices of whatever I'm cooking (if it's Italian, Italian seasoning. Mexican, mexican seasoning and so forth so that it compliments everything else served). I let the pan get hot for a few minutes before I throw in the veggies, stir frequently for a few minutes and you are good! Basically, you just want them to be a nice temperature and that doesn't take very long. Once you start eating it you'll get an idea of how long you cook different types of veggies.

Certain veggies I do boil, like sweet potatoes. Boil them in chicken broth and have fun with them by adding something spicy like curry.

I also boil beans. I stir fry green beans, onions, peppers, broccoli. Hopefully that helps.

That's how it went for me

Ok, I tried it tonight and it was amazing, soo fresh and tasty and above all healthyyyyy
But I believe I did few mistakes
I've should boil the green beans or give them all more time on fire !!
And i boiled potatoes for too long so it was about to get broken while stirring that's why I didn't leave allot on fire
