Healthy cooking way - steaming
Steaming is a gentle cooking method that locks in vitamins and is a healthy way to prepare vegetables. Steaming is a healthy method of cooking because it adds no fat or calories.
PRESERVES THE FIBER, COLOUR AND FLAVOUR OF VEGETABLES
By steam-cooking, the vegetables are kept as close to their natural raw state as possible, whilst still heating through thoroughly. This not only prevents the vegetables from turning into a mash or purée, but it also allows them to retain their original color, taste, juices and freshness.
Many of the vitamins and minerals found in vegetables are lost with some conventional methods of cooking. Steaming ensures that vitamins such as vitamin B, riboflavin, thiamine, niacin, biotin, B12, pantothenic acid and vitamin C, as well as minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, and zinc are retained.
By cooking over a single heat source, you can have different layers of food stacked one on top of the other, saving time, energy and money!
No oil, no smoke, no mess - cleaning up is easy. When steaming.
