Step by step

Serve the mixed, steamed vegetables with salt, pepper and a dash of diet olive oil

If you want to cook various kinds of steamed vegetables simultaneously, bear in mind that they may have different cooking times. If you have a multi-storey steamer, put the vegetables that need longer cooking times below those that need less. If you have a single basket, add the vegetables one by one, according to the cooking time. Start, for example, with potatoes and carrots, then peas, and then finally add the courgettes and asparagus.
There are no vegetables that do not lend themselves to steaming! However, we don’t advise the method for recipes involving cheese and red meat which require different methods of cooking!
