- 200g mixed vegetables of your choice
- tsp salt
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp margarine/ butter
- 1 tsp mixed herbs
When it comes to having vegetables, save for butternuts, I like to have them crunchy and not soggy or too soft. I also want them to look appetizing which they often don’t look like when they are over-done. This is also apart from the fact that you lose all the nutrients when you over-cook food. These steamed mixed vegetables I’m making don’t take time at all. In fact, they should be the last thing you prepare when you’re making a meal (they are that fast!) They remain nice and crunchy yet they are done. They taste so good that even my mother-in-law asked me how I do it 🙂 So I’m sharing with you too.
- Place mixed vegetables in colander and wash them thoroughly under running water. Put them in microwavable dish, add water and salt.
- Toss the vegetables to allow the salt to mix well with them. Put vegetables in microwave and cook on high for 3 minutes 30 seconds. When they’re done, add margarine and stir.
- Add mixed herbs and toss. Give it a quick stir again and your vegetables are ready.
