1 Answer

Lost my instructions.. How do I steam actual veggies?

Okay, this is what I did.. I cut up the broccoli, and placed it in the clear container, and added about 2 cups of water to the base of the steamer. Is this right? I set the timer for 20 minutes. Am I doing this correctly? Jen

Hi,

  • The water level as long do not overflow is ok. Ensure water do touches the centre of the element.It's important to ensure there is sufficent water in the base of the steamer by visually viewing the transparent water level gauage.You can top up water on the either side handle.Turn the timer on if you think that the food will cook at 20 min or so.A receipes will help and tell you to set the exact min for cooking.


Regards
Alan

How to Steam Vegetables in your Rice Cooker


<p>One of the extra benefits of having a <b>Rice Cooker</b> is that you can also use it very effectively as a <b>steamer</b> for your vegetables. It is very simple to do and also works very well.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>To <b>use your rice cooker as a steamer</b> you will need to use the <b>steamer basket</b> that came with your rice cooker. That is what the metal thing with all the holes in it is for.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>First place couple of cups of water in the bottom of the cooker pan... yes you still need to place the pan in the cooker... do not place water in the cooker without the bottom pan in place! Then place that metal basket on the top of the bottom pan and place your veggies in there. They can be either frozen, fresh, or thawed, it does not matter, but may affect your cooking times.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Then comes the good part....you get to season your veggies with whatever it is that will make them taste even better! Salt, Pepper, and even a Teriyaki sauce will work well... but you can spice them up with minced onion, parsley, garlic powder or anything else you might think sounds good.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Then just place the lid on the top of the basket and turn the rice cooker on by pressing the cook or steam button. The cooker will heat up to produce steam. When the vegetables begin to soften, check them and turn off the cooker when they get to the softness that you desire. Do not over cook them as you will loose the flavor, and nutrients, that you are trying to preserve by using the steamer.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Once the veggies are done, some people enjoy melting butter, margarine, or other similar things on them to give them even more flavor.<br /> <p><br /> <br /> <p>Most of all enjoy those great veggies!!!<br />

How do I freeze broccoli


preparing broccoli to freeze.
1. remove leaves & woody portions.
2. separate heads into sections & immerse in brine for 30 minutes(4 teaspoons salt + 1 gallon water) to remove insects. remove & rinse.
3.split lengthwise to no more than 1 1/2 inches across.
4. water blanch 3 minutes or steam blanch for 5 minutes. start counting as soon as you place broccoli in boiling water.
5. immediately immerse in cold or ice water to stop cooking action.
6. drain & package leaving no head space ( the less air the better, will keep longer with out freezer burn), seal & freeze.

two ways to freeze -
1. place in bags( I use quart size fro this method) remove as much air as possible & seal.
2. place broccoli on flat sheets in freezer 1-2 hours to freeze, then remove & place in bags( I use gallon size for this method, size & style of storage unite is choice of preference). with this method one can use as little or as much as needed for what you need. I use this method for my peppers & peas as well.

What is the advantage of steaming your vegetables in a steaming basket?


Steaming is one of the healthiest cooking techniques around. It's also a quick-and-easy way to cook up dinner veggies (especially for my family of 5). Here are some of the best vegetables to steam and tips for keeping them nice and crisp.
The Benefits of Steaming-
You may have heard this before: steaming is one of the best ways to cook veggies so they keep their nutrients. Vitamins are easily destroyed when you cook with water for long periods of time (i.e. boiling), but steaming uses the steam from boiling water to cook your food -- not the water directly.
Another advantage of steaming is no added fat or sodium (do you dab butter in a boiling pot of broccoli or load in the salt?). Any veggie you steam will be around 25 calories per half-cup and chock-full of vitamins and minerals.
