Steamed Green and White Vegetables


  • 1/2 bunch broccoli, cut into florets, thick stems discarded (about 3/4 pound of broccoli)

  • 1/2 head cauliflower, cut into florets (about 3/4 pound of cauliflower)

  • 2 small zucchini, trimmed and sliced (about 3/4 pound)

  • 1 small carrot, trimmed, peeled, and sliced

  • zest of 1 lemon, finely grated

How often have you seen an advertisement for broccoli or cauliflower? Not too often! But once you start working this side dish into your weekly diet, you will become a walking commercial for the goodness of these steamed vegetables. Eating this alongside fish, chicken, or steak leaves you feeling cleansed and satisfied, yet never stuffed.


  • Chop the broccoli and cauliflower florets into bite-size pieces.
  • In a steamer basket set over boiling water or in an electric steamer, steam the vegetables for 3 to 5 minutes, or until fork-tender. Serve the steamed vegetables sprinkled with zest.
