Sautéing and caramelizing onion is an essential skill to have if you're trying to lose weight and improve your health without counting calories or eating less. You can easily save 100-400 calories by omitting oil when you cook and using water or veg stock instead.
Just one tablespoon of oil has 120 calories and 12g of fat. That's a "whole-lotta" calories and fat in the smallest quantity of food on earth! Oil is scientifically the most calorie dense food on the planet.
However, it takes more than just adding water to a pan to get awesome flavor sautéing without oil. I've seen people pour a 1/2 cup of water into a cold pan and then add their onion just as they turn the stove on. Ahh!
That's going to taste more like a water-logged, steamed onion. Not, sweet and golden brown onion that's full of flavor.
Learn how to sauté using vegetable stock instead of oil to create immense flavor on today's blog video below.
There's also a correct temperature you want your pan to reach before you add any liquid or food to it. I'll show you how to know when you've reached that correct temperature in today's video too.
