Food Rules Friday
Rule #26: "Drink the Spinach Water."
"Another bit of traditional wisdom with good science behind it. The water in which vegetables are cooked is rich in vitamins and other plant chemicals. Save it for the soup or add it to the sauces."
Of course, in other methods of cooking vegetables, such as roasting or sauteeing, the vitamins are not leached into water.
