Organic veggies can still have traces of dirt and bugs. Non-organic veggies are often covered in pesticides. This method won’t get rid of all the pesticides, but they’ll be a lot less of them on your plate.

After peeling and cutting your vegetables, let them soak in water for 15-20 minutes. You can add vinegar or baking soda for a deeper clean. Once they’ve done their time, rinse under running water and cook.
