Mini Steamer makes cooking vegetables on-the-go simple
This three-piece unit is designed for use in a microwave oven and is perfect for RVers. It is small, with a two-cup capacity, making it an easy kitchen accessory to bring along on trips of all lengths. Its size also makes it ideal for preparing meals for two people at a time.
It is made out of plastic and consists of a base, steaming basket and lid. To use it, fill the base with a small amount of water, then place cleaned vegetables into the steaming basket and put the cover on. Pop it into the microwave to quickly steam vegetables. How long you cook them for will dictate how crunchy or soft the vegetables are.
Many people prefer steaming vegetables since this cooking method is known to help them maintain their nutrients during the cooking process.
Exploring the local areas you travel to and purchasing locally-grown, in-season produce will also help you keep up with eating smartly on the road. And, preparing meals at home can be healthier and more economical than eating at restaurants while away from home.
