Steaming

So my lady and I had a mission last Saturday, to find a rice cooker/steamer to make it easier for us to make healthy meals at home. We went to several different stores and it was a funny display of Dutch cooking habits that every place had one or two rice cookers and ten to fifteen deep fryers. We eventually found a nice rice cooker/steamer combo at BCC, and have made two meals already in it -- rice, green beans and salmon Saturday night, and risotto Milanese last night. Both were totally delish.

So, I'm casting about trying to think of more things to steam -- probably going to do potatoes tonight. Any ideas? The steamer came with some recipes, but I'm sure people have come up with their own inventions that are quick and easy in a steamer. Let me know what you like to steam!

E,

I'm a Broccoli & Cauliflower steamin' fool! Also use it for Croissants that've gotten a lil' too hard. (Microwave never seems to do it justice)

Croissants -- sounds interesting. I hadn't thought of that.

We've been doing tons of veggies and fish and rice so far, but no cauliflower yet -- A. isn't a fan. I'll have to wait for an evening when she's away and then engorge myself on steamed cauliflower. Yum!
