If you are running short on time but still want to eat healthy during the holidays, steaming may be a good option. It is easy and has come a long way since the days of putting a metal basket in a pot of boiling water.Now you can make veggies fast, easy and healthful using a digital steamer.

Several of the top celebrity chefs are now using steaming as a method to prepare healthier and fantastic tasting dishes.



Here are the top tips for steaming food:

  • Time for steaming varies depending on the food being steamed. To avoid overcooking, know the cooking time for the food you want to steam.
  • Maintain enough water for steaming.
  • Be careful of the drops of water from the foods and lids when opening up the steamer. Always use a cloth or gloves to pick up the lid.
  • Asparagus broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, green beans, carrots, asparagus, artichokes and are wonderful options because they’re resilient and won’t turn mushy quite as easily as other veggies.
  • Leafy greens, such as kale, spinach, Chinese broccoli and baby bok choy, steam up nicely and take less time. If you want a new twist to your steaming try experimenting with spices, radishes or adding new potatoes.
