Steamed Green Beans, Celery, Red Pepper & Onions

READY IN: 20mins

Very simple recipie that is attractive and tasty. I say to steam the beans & celery for 10 minutes and add the peppers/onions for last 5 minutes - This leaves the vegetables still quite crisp. If you like your veggies well done double the time.

Delicious and a pretty presentation! What more could one want? The steam time was perfect & resulted in crisp yet tender veggies. Served with baked salmon. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
