Sautéing uses less oil than frying, but foods are still tasty.

"I love the taste of fried foods."

  • Sautéing means to cook foods in a pan on the stove with a little bit of fat (such as oil or butter) so it does not stick.

  • Cover the bottom of your pan with oil, heat your pan under medium heat, and add your food.  Move the food around as it cooks.

  • Sautéing is a good way to add flavor to food without adding much fat.
