    How to steam veggies

    Advertisements
    On the Stovetop:

    1. Add 1 or 2 inches of water to a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat.
    2. Prepare your vegetables for cooking. After washing thoroughly, cut vegetables into equal-sized pieces to ensure even cooking.
    3. Place your steaming basket (a specially designed tool that fits inside a pot and holds food just over the surface of the water) into the pot of water.
    4. Add your vegetables to the basket and cover.
    5. Cook until your vegetables reach the desired texture. Most vegetables usually require only 1 to 2 minutes of steaming since steam is even hotter than boiling water. If you like your veggies tender, cook a little longer; if you prefer crunchy veggies, cook for shorter periods. Be careful not to overcook, or you'll end up with mushy veggies.
    6. Remove the vegetables from the heat. Carefully remove the lid (remember, the steam can burn your hand!) and serve immediately with a South Beach Diet®-approved seasoning, including any spice (that doesn't contain added sugar) or fresh chopped herbs such as parsley.

    In the Microwave:

    1. Prepare your vegetables for cooking. After washing thoroughly, cut vegetables into equal-sized pieces to ensure even cooking .
    2. Place vegetables in a large, microwave-safe bowl (a glass bowl, for example).
    3. Add water to cover your vegetables — the water should be shallow in the bowl.
    4. Cover the bowl with microwave-safe plastic wrap and turn over one corner to vent.
    5. Microwave on high for 4 to 8 minutes (depending on thickness of vegetable) or until your veggies reach the desired consistency.
