There is a big push out there now for using no added oils when cooking foods. I understand the rationale behind it, and am not disputing that at all. However as a cook, I realize that oils do serve some purpose during food preparation. So, I decided to test it out.
I grilled a seasoned yellow squash on a table top grill. It was cut into four pieces, two to be tested with oil and two without oil. All four pieces were heavily seasoned because I wanted to see if the seasoning would stick to the squash without the added oil. All pieces were grilled at the same time on the same electric grill. The results surprised me and I learned some things along the way! Check out the video below. Maybe you’ll be surprised too!
I hope this helps!
