1/1 Photo of Healthy Steamed Vegetables
This is the healthiest way you can eat vegetables. When served raw, if not chewed thoroughly, vegetables can cause polyps to form on the inner tract of the colon. If boiled or canned, the vitamins are diminished. Proper steaming of your vegetables leaves the vitamins and minerals intact, while also saving your tummy lots of trouble. It's delicious, too! Multiply this recipe by the number of adult servings you need...it's that easy! :) You can use any variety of vegetables in season, or not...even frozen vegetables. One cup [cooked weight] is one serving.

- 1Set up your steamer inside your pot with 1 1/2" water in the bottom of the pot and heat over medium-high heat until water is boiling.
- 2Deposit vegetables with a light salting and garlic to taste; season salt may be used, to taste.
- 3Replace lid and steam until vegetables are tender, but not mushy. Fork will insert easily, but will not tear veggies apart, when done.
