How to Steam Veggies
The easiest way to eat veggies is to steam them but how do you do them with out making them turn out yucky.
Well I have been using an electric steamer for many years. I like the electric sooo much that I had two one for at home and one at my business. Before I had the electric steamer I would cook on the stove top and they would end up mushy and looking like canned veggies...eww
And cooking in the microwave ended up with hard veggies (some squash had some sparks of fire...eekk) and very hot bowls...eww
Well then I tried those baskets one for the pot and one for the microwave, it never worked for me (must be the non cook in me...lol)
Well entered the electric steamer, the veggies turn out perfect every time and I have never steamed any other way since. When you turn it on get hot and start to steam very fast and you can walk away because when it done it dings and turns off.
My steamer also has a rice bowl so I can cook rice also; I even cook some beans in it once. I have steamed corn on the cob, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, green beans, carrots, peas in the pod, zucchini, yellow squash, sweet potato, white potato, even greens, ect. Some veggies do take longer than others.
This is the steamer that I have,
I have recently found a microwave steamer that in less than 5 minutes you can have a plate of chopped steamed veggies, and that is great when I;m done teaching piano and it;s after 8pm and I don;t want to cook. I have used it several times so far and the veggies turn out great. I have steamed in small pieces of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, sweet potato, mushrooms, eggplant, greens, beans(already cooked) ect.
Here is the microwave steamer,
