Sparkling water—it’s zero calories, refreshing, and the perfect addition to your recipes! When used for cooking and baking, the bubbles in seltzer water create pockets of air that expand when heated, which causes foods to feel lighter and airier. Check out the many ways you can amp up your cooking with sparkling water:
1.) Make brighter, softer vegetables
For vividly colorful vegetables, boiling your veggies in sparkling water decreases oxidation and the loss of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments, keeping vegetables’ bright colors. It also softens vegetables, which decreases cooking time.
2.) Bake fluffier cakes, waffles, and pancakesSwapping sparkling water for milk or water in your pancake and waffle batter will result in fluffier pancakes and lighter, crispier waffles. As for cake, finish off your batter with a bit of seltzer water for the lightest, moistest cake you’ve ever had! And don’t worry, you won’t taste any carbonation – just super-light and airy bites!
3.) Whip up the fluffiest scrambled eggsA splash of milk always does the trick to make eggs fluffier, but a tablespoon of seltzer will do it even better! Add it to your breakfast for some of the lightest, fluffiest scrambled eggs you can imagine.
4.) Make a fizzy, airy smoothieIt’s easy to get bored with using the same milk or fruit juice in your recipe. Take your morning smoothie to the next level by switching your milk, juice, or plain water with seltzer! The carbonation from sparkling water will fizz up your smoothie and add something worth getting out of bed for!
