Hi and happy Thursday! I have a very fast tip today; however it’s one that I saves me TONS of time and I told someone about this the other day and was astonished when they had no clue what I was talking about so I just had to get it up here!
If you’re a clean eater like myself (or even if you’re not) then you probably eat a ton of veggies! I love to steam my veggies. Preparing them this way is one of the best ways to cook them since it will preserve the texture, color and flavor….and most importantly, the nutrients! Plus, it’s usually pretty quick.
BUT! My way is even quicker than the traditional way of steaming veggies and they come out perfect. Every. single. time.
What’s the secret? These little babies!!
I know most of you probably already use these, but seriously, if you’re not, do yourself a favor and pick them up asap!
These make my life (and food prep) much easier. Just wash and prep your veggies then toss em in the bag…that’s it, for real. Don’t add any water. You could add spices if you wanted to, but I usually just do that afterwards. The really cool thing is that each bag has a guide on it for cooking times. Just find what veggie you’re cooking on there and it will tell you how long to cook for and voila! Perfectly steamed veggies in a matter of minutes! I usually pull the bag out, open it (be careful, super hot) and let it sit on the counter for a few minutes to cool so I don’t get a big steam burn on my face!
That’s it…told you it was easy! Do you guys use these?
