Steamed veggies as a snack

One of the things that I do often when I want a snack is to steam veggies. A while back I purchased a mini microwave steamer which I love. I always have a variety of frozen veggies in my freezer. It is a wonderful thing because you can have steamed veggies in five minutes (microwave times vary) with easy cleaning. I will have the link to the website where I purchased mine at the end of this post. I also found the steamer by another company called progressive. That link will also be at the end of this post. But of course you can use whichever one you prefer. What I do is steam the veggies, drain them by lifting the slotted bowl part over the sink (be careful because it is hot and steaming when you remove the top cover), and then pour the drained veggies into the bottom bowl. Then I simply mix with whatever I feel at the moment and also depending on what veggies I am having. For example, for broccoli sometimes I use lemon juice and lemon and pepper seasoning, vegan margarine with/without seasoning/ vegan parmesan cheese, or salad dressing. There are many varieties and the good thing is you are eating your veggies. In many of my recipes when I am making a small portion of veggies and I say to steam them, this microwave steamer is what I use. Here is the link to the one I use:

In case for some reason the link does not work correctly go to the miles kimball site and put mini microwave steamer in the search bar.

Here is the other link to the other website which sells the one by progressive.

Thank you for coming to my blog. Please come back again soon.
