Steaming is a quick and healthy way to cook foods.

"Steaming veggies makes them too mushy."

  • If your veggies are too mushy, try steaming uncovered for a shorter amount of time.

  • Steaming is a healthy method of cooking because it adds no fat or calories.

  • Steaming food in the microwave is easy. Using a microwave safe dish, put a little water in the bottom with the food and heat until the food is cooked through.
