The Ingredient David Chang Adds For Delicious Steamed Vegetables
When it comes to creating delicious sides of steamed vegetables, chef David Chang suggests using seasoned salts to give your dishes a quick boost of flavor.
"It's just a really easy way to add flavor to something that is healthy for you," Chang explains on his Momofuku channel on YouTube.
Seasoned salt can be found in many varieties and combinations, and can be blended with paprika, garlic powder, and even sprinkles of sugar.
While Momofuku offers a lineup of assorted flavored and seasoned salts, like Spicy Seasoned Salt, Tingly Seasoned Salt, and Savory Seasoned Salt, you can also make your own.
At home, you can combine all the ingredients you love the most and make a seasoned salt that is exactly to your liking. If you like a bit of heat, you can add chili powder.
If you want some earthier flavors to round out your seasoning salt, add some flakes of dried parsley or basil.
Less is often more when it comes to preparing fresh ingredients, and a quick sprinkle of seasoned salts can be all that is needed to bring out the natural veggie flavors.
