- When replacing oil with water to sauté food, use the same technique as you do with oil. To prevent sticking, make sure you heat your skillet sufficiently, then add water to the skillet before adding the ingredients. Start with a tablespoon or two of water, depending on skillet size. If the ingredients begin to stick at any point, just add a little water to the skillet and stir. This method results in a healthier meal with fewer calories and less fat.
