    • Hi LIV.. Not a silly question at all. I cut each piece small enough (at least for the carrots) & Broccoli to cook fast enough. I don’t boil at all. Just adding in all the veggies together to cook. If you are finding your veggies are not cooked to your liking just put a lid on the sauce pan and let set a few minutes. The heat & steam will cook it through. Hopes this help
