TFK Vegetable Recipes 


Minimum Moisture Cooked Vegetables

Select the correct size saucepan, best results when saucepan is 2/3 full. Place rinsed and chopped vegetables in saucepan, add 2 to 3 tablespoons water to restore the water lost by the vegetables in transit from the field to kitchen.  Cover and place saucepan over medium heat.  When Thermal-Knob reaches 50˚ or water vapor begins to escape, turn heat to low or off.


Cooking times vary depending upon vegetable density.

Corn, frozen                       1 – 2 minutes, heat off

Peas, fresh or frozen      2 – 3 minutes, heat off

Asparagus                           5 – 7 minutes, heat off

Beans, green                     7 – 8 minutes, heat off

Potatoes, cubed               13 – 15 minutes, reduce to low
