Hot & Steamy

Steaming your veggies is a great way to maintain the flavor and nutrients.  Since it is so easy, it is a great option for those busy weeknights.

The key is to not over-cook the vegetables.  The veggies should always be firm but tender, never mushy. (My personal preference is to leave them slightly raw 🙂 ) I have the Oster 5711 Steamer and have really gotten accustomed to how much time certain veggies need.  If you do not have a steamer here is a great tutorial with a video on how to do it stove-top!

Our local grocer just delivered a few crates of perfect ears of corn.  Husk and all, we steamed the sweet corn for about 20 minutes.  PERFECT-O!  To protect my steamer, I usually season my veggies after they are cooked.  This corn, however, did not need a thing! Delicious and crisp.
