To Amuse and Delight

steam once, eat much

I've been doing this a lot lately. Early on in the day, usually after breakfast I will steam my veggies. Carrots, zucchini  snow peas, broccoli, asparagus, whatever I have all layered up. The more delicate ones on the top. I steam them just as they turn bright green. I uncover them to stop the cooking and they are ready to use in many dishes throughout the day. 
They can be tossed into a salad. (Don't you love these paper animals? My girls print and build them from this site for free!
Or made into a quick soup. A bit of my kimchi to finish it off.
Steamed broccoli teamed up with rice and other veggies becomes filling for an omelet.  I've mentioned this before, having ingredients ready makes cooking easier and brings vegetables to "fast food" convenience.

  1. Such a great idea! I have a pot that cooks rice and steams veggies at once, but I have never thought of steaming multiple veggies at one time. I think this just might change my life. Thanks!
    I'm also bookmarking that paper animal site. A**** will love it!
