I knew that would get your attention!
When you boil or steam vegetables like broccoli, kale, cauliflower, carrots, etc; the water left behind is called "pot liquor." During the cooking process nutrients are pulled from the vegetables and into the water.
This beautiful water will intoxicate you with vitamins and minerals naturally present in these vegetables, so pouring it into a mug and sipping it throughout your meal is an amazing way to increase your vitamin and mineral intake- or you can use it in place of plain water for making rice, quinoa or even a stir-fry.
So don’t throw away your Pot Liquor!
