Simply Steamed Veggies

  • 2 cups veggies, chopped (this method works best for firm veggies like broccoli, carrots and cauliflower)
  • Water
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (optional)
  • Salt or other seasonings, to taste

Serves: 4

  1. Pour 1/2 inch of water into a medium pot on the stovetop over high heat and cover until water is boiling.
  2. Put veggies in the pot and put the lid back on. Steam for 5-10 minutes. Start checking at 5 minutes by poking with a fork, removing when at desired tenderness.
  3. When at desired tenderness, drain the veggies in a colander, then put them back in the pot. If desired, sprinkle on 2 teaspoons olive oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt or other seasonings of choice.

Water is boiling when there are bubbles breaking all over the surface.
