Steaming vegetables is a healthy way to make use of the Steam Mode. Vitamins and nutrients are preserved, flavors are brighter, and you can place many different kinds of vegetables on the same tray. This process also works well for blanching and shocking (a common practice for setting the color of green vegetables).
Before You Start
Make use of the solid convection steam oven pan on rack position 1 to act as a drip tray. Steaming provides a fast and healthy way to prepare vegetables, and a benefit of steam is that it doesn’t transfer flavors. A variety of vegetables can be steamed at the same time without crossover of flavors.
Place the desired amount of vegetables onto the perforated oven pan. Place the solid oven pan on rack position 1 and perforated pan on rack position 2. Turn the convection steam oven on by selecting the Steam Mode set to 210°F. Steam the vegetables until the desired doneness is achieved. Anything from 5 - 20 minutes steam time.
