    Recipe Tip

    Taste the dish before adding the salt as you may not need to use it all. Some sausages are very salty.

What is Crisp-Tender?

Crisp-tender vegetables give your dish a splash of color and irresistible texture. Crisp-tender vegetables are broken down just enough so you can sink your teeth into them, but not enough to take away their satisfying crunch or the vibrant color. Plus, it’s quick and easy to prepare vegetables this way. Within a couple of minutes, they’re ready to plate!
