Although what sous vide cooking does for meat, poultry, or fish is the stuff of legend, elevating the ordinary to the sublime, you might be surprised at what it can do for a humble vegetable. One of the benefits of sous vide cooking is that it amplifies the natural flavors in foods, so beets taste beetier and carrots more like carrots. This gentle and precise method brings out the best in whatever goes in the bag. Another bonus of this technique is the ability to fully cook vegetables without turning them to mush. The result is not so much a tender crispness, but an al dente tenderness that preserves their structure and integrity. But don’t take our word for it. Check out what Chicago Foodie has to say here.
