Steamed Vegetables

Ready in 45 minutes

Not only are steamed vegetables more nutritious than boiled vegetables, but they are often far brighter in appearance.

"If you dont have a large enough double steaming saucepan set then you could use a spaghetti pot with an insert basket for draining or even a large stock pot and only place enough water in to cover the potatoes half way up and then place the other vegetables on top of the uncovered potatoes."

Preparation

Remove rusk and silk from corn cobs and cut in half and wash if using fresh corn cobs then place in a steamer saucepan. Peel and wash potatoes and carrots or just wash well if leaving skins on and place the carrots in with the corn cobs and the potatoes in the bottom saucepan. Cover the potatoes with water then place the steamer on top and cover with the lid and check that the water covering the potatoes is not touching the steamer sitting above it, Place on the stove on high heat to bring to the boil, once boiling turn heat down to low and cook for about 20 minutes. Peel, quarter and wash the sweet potato ( sweet potatoes will discolour once peeled, so only peel and wash when ready to cook them ) and place in the bottom of the steamer, moving the corn cobs and carrots to sit on top of them, then wash the broccoli and cauli and place on top of all, cover and simmer for about 10 or 15 minutes extra.

Notes

If you dont have a large enough double steaming saucepan set then you could use a spaghetti pot with an insert basket for draining or even a large stock pot and only place enough water in to cover the potatoes half way up and then place the other vegetables on top of the uncovered potatoes.
