HOW TO STEAM VEGETABLES ON THE STOVE 

Welcome back guys, today I’m going to show you an easy way of how to steam vegetables on the stove which can be an alternative to using a microwave and is particularly useful if steaming a large amount of vegetables.

All you need is a saucepan and just a splash of water and there are just 5 simple steps that will create nice crisp steamed veggies with no cooling oil needed.

Step number 1 is to cut your veggies up and place in appropriately sized saucepan.
Step number 2 is to run a splash of water into the saucepan. You literally just need a splash such as 30 to 150 mls of water depending on how many vegetables you are steaming and how big the saucepan is.
Step number 3 is to place the saucepan on the stove top and set the temperature close to the highest setting and leave the saucepan on that setting until the lid starts to bobble as though the pressure wants to escape.

When the lid starts to bobble, step number 4 is to spin the lid around until it stops spinning and creates like a vacuum seal inside the saucepan. This will trap in the heat and allow the veggies to effectively steam.
And step number 5 is that once you have spun the lid to create the seal, you must reduce the heat to almost it’s lowest setting and set a timer for 5 minutes.

Using my stove top as an example, my highest setting is 9, so I set the stove to number 8 until the lid starts to bobble then I spin the lid to create the seal, reduce the temperature to 3 and cook for 5 minutes.

So that’s it, very easy and as saucepans can be very large, this can allow you to steam more veggies than you could in the microwave.
