How do I refresh vegetables?
Refreshing vegetables is an odd term, and it simply means to plunge them in cold water immediately after cooking.
Why do you need to refresh vegetables?
It’s not essential, but some recipes recommend it. It’s to stop the cooking process, because vegetables that are just drained will remain hot, and continue to cook a little more.
Refreshing is great for ensuring a crisp and crunchy final texture.
