Kinder Kitchen cooking tip - steaming vegetables
When cooking vegetables steaming is the best method to retain the nutrients. You can buy steamers that rest on the bottom of the saucepan. A cheaper way is using a sieve or a colander. Always remember to place the lid on the saucepan otherwise it will take forever to cook your veg. Although this is the best method for retaining nutrients boiling vegetables in little water is also fine. The fact that you are cooking them fresh is the most important thing. Don't beat yourself up for not steaming.
