I just tried this recipe from <a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>
and really liked it. Taste and texture of the vegetables was perfect! I used the leafy part of bok choy because I didn't have any collards. Ignore the chicken in the picture, that isn't part of the recipe!<br><br>
------<br><br><b>Steamed Vegetable Medley</b><br>
This dish is one of those gems that is easy, delicate, and delicious, giving you a way to have the benefits of fresh vegetables in your diet with little effort. Because it is steamed it gives you a healthier way to enjoy these vegetables without using heated oils. For a wonderful variation try steaming a piece of salmon or chicken on top of vegetables for a 1 dish meal that is quick, clean, and healthy.<br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;"><b>Prep and Cook Time:</b> 15 minutes<br><br><b>Ingredients:</b>

<ol style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>Bring lightly salted water to a boil in a steamer with a tight fitting lid. Add carrots, cover, and steam for 3 minutes.

<li>Remove from steamer and place in bowl. Toss with dressing ingredients.<br><br><b>Serves 2</b><br><b>Healthy Cooking Tips:</b><br>
It helps to toss the steamer basket up and down with the cooked vegetables to drain out excess water. This will keep the flavor from being diluted. Make sure you don't over cook the zucchini, as it also will dilute the flavor if over cooked. It will start to look a little translucent when it overcooks.</li>
