    Pagan's Note:

    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's that easy! :) You can use any variety of vegetables in season, or not...even frozen vegetables. One cup [cooked weight] is one serving.

      I usually steam my vegetables & season them after they're done, but this way works very well, too! Done this way, they definitely could not be healthier as far as we're concerned! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC tag]

      I used this method to steam some frozen vegetables and it worked perfectly, it takes more time to cook than fresh vegetables. The subtle flavours of the garlic and salt were a perfect seasoning. I mixed the vegetables with steamed rice and served it with a chicken dish.
