Well, I finally got around to steaming some veggies in the Pasta Boat. When I first bought the Pasta Boat and wrote it up last November I promised to steam some veggies and let you know how it worked.
I am happy to report that the Pasta Boat steams veggies as simply and efficiently as it cooks pasta.
There is a steaming rack included in the Pasta Boat package. You only use it for steaming. It is clearly marked not to be used for pasta.
I got a couple of cups of broccoli, rinsed it off and set them inside the Pasta Boat.
I had the steaming rack inside along with a cup of water.
Steaming is utter simplicity, right up Mr. Lazy Cook’s alley.
Cover the Pasta Boat.
Put in microwave.
Cook on high for five minutes.
Remove and serve.
The photos show the rich green of the freshly steamed broccoli.
Broccoli breaks down as follows nutritionally: One serving is a cup.
31 calories, no fat of any kind, no cholesterol, 30 mg of sodium, 6 grams carbohydrate, 2 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein.
Again, I recommend the Pasta Boat. I have made my own pasta in it since the day I bought it.
