  • The amount of time needed to cook vegetables will depend on the quantity of vegetables used, the type of vegetables used, and the size the vegetables are cut into.
  • Adjust the quantity of vegetables according to the number of servings needed, about 1/2 cup of vegetables per person.
  • Veggies taste best if not overcooked.
