Steaming is a simple and healthy way to prepare vegetables!
Steaming takes 3-5 minutes for leafy green vegetables (like kale and swiss chard) ? and 10-15 minutes for root vegetables (like sweet potatoes and carrots) ???
All you need is a steaming basket and a pot with a lid filled with about 2 inches of water.
Place your vegetables in the steaming basket over the water, bring to a boil, then turn down to low heat, cover with a fitted lid, and set your timer. Vegetables are ready when they’re vibrant and tender!
