Steaming is widely known as one of the healthiest cooking methods. You’re essentially cooking food in a sealed environment which helps to lock in nutrients and flavour more effectively, thus reducing the need to add oil. (With that said, you can always add various condiments and spices when steaming if you want a more flavoursome dish!)
Foods that are great for steaming include vegetables (like kailan, green beans, asparagus), fish and chicken. Whether you use conventional basket steamers or electric ones, steaming food is fast, easy and convenient as you don’t need to sweat it out over the stove. You can also speed up the process even more by using a pressure cooker.
