Oil Free Vegan Cooking Tips

Jill Dalton
Cooking without oil strikes many people as either a crazy notion or one that would be terribly difficult. “How do you caramelize onions?” they ask or, “What about roasting vegetables?”. In this show we walk through an in depth demonstration of how to water sauté: caramelizing onions without oil, veggie broth sauté: using homemade vegetable broth instead of water to sauté, and oven roasting vegetables with veggie broth instead of oil. Oil Free Vegan Cooking is a rapidly growing trend as more people realize there is no need to pour the empty calories of refined oil onto your tasty plant based food!

  1. Do you ever save the liquid left after deglazing the pan you used to caramelize the onions, to reuse as a kind of veggie broth?

  2. Leftover aquafaba liquid would work too, from canned or home cooked garbanzo beans (I make hummus from scratch). If I boil any vegetables I save that too and use it for sautéing and baking veggies.
