Vegetables are cooked over boiling water in a steamer.
Steamed vegetables do not need seasoning as vitamins and flavour are not lost in cooking water.
- Choose a saucepan with a steamer.
- Half fill the saucepan with water and bring to the boil.
- Place vegetables in the steamer making sure they do not touch the water.
- Cover and adjust the heat to a steady simmer.
- Cook until vegetables are tender.
- Add more boiling water if necessary.
