All vegetables are healthy and rich in vitamins and trace elements. Sometimes, however, heat treatment can reduce these nutrients, so it makes sense to choose a cooking method that helps you get the most out of your vegetables. Steam cooking is the perfect way to do this!

Why steam vegetables?

Preparing vegetables the traditional way, boiling them in water, unfortunately loses about 40% of nutrients they contain. This way most of the vitamins C, A and E as well as B group vitamins are cooked out. Preparing vegetables in steam helps to preserve most of the vitamins and micronutrients, and also brings out a much better taste of the food and makes it digest better.

What vegetables are suitable for steaming?

The following vegetables are perfect for this type of processing

  • cauliflower,
  • peppers,
  • broccoli,
  • peas,
  • zucchini,
  • green beans,
  • potatoes,
  • brussels sprouts,
  • peppers,
  • carrots (although this one usually needs more time).

How to steam vegetables?

To do this, you can use a regular cooking pot with a suitable grid, a regular cloth or a tetra diaper. You can also use a steamer, which is a special electric device for steaming, usually consisting of several tiers on which you can place meat and vegetables.
