One method that reigns supreme over all other methods of cooking in terms of retaining the most amount of nutrients and tasting the best is Steaming! It is now the latest growing trend in meal preparation because it is one of the most natural ways to cook and also has grown in popularity because of its versatility.
Here are some benefits of Steaming:
1. Does not require oil:Steaming avoids the calories of oil, butter and other fats, making your food non-greasy and
2. Doesn’t agitate food:Steaming is a perfect and gentle way to cook delicate items such as baby carrots or green
beans, unlike boiling, which upsets the composition of the food.
3. Retains nutritional value:Steaming keeps all those valuable nutrients inside the food instead of in the cooking
liquid. It also helps in conserving the fibre, colour, texture and flavour of the food.
4. Enhances digestion:Steaming softens the fibres of vegetables and fruits, making them more easily digestible, so
your body can absorb all that nutritional goodness more easily.
