When a recipe calls for Blanched vegetable, here’s a easy step for it:

• Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Add the vegetables and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

• Remove from heat and rinse immediately in cold water or with ice cubes, to stop the cooking process and drain well.

• This process barely cooks vegetables so that they retain bright colors and crispness.

Note: Salt can be added to the water, as desired.
