Jazzy Tip

To decrease the fat content in many savory dishes, you can replace some or all of the oil used in stovetop cooking with vegetable broth or water. Use 3 tablespoons of either veggie broth or water to replace 1 tablespoon of oil. Unlike oil, these liquids will evaporate during cooking, so be very watchful and add more as needed.

Preparation Time

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 20 mins
