Produce that I used is – Broccoli Florets, Mushrooms, Ice Berg Lettuce and baby corn. Any vegetables can be used, as long as they are fresh and you like them but using vegetables in different colors is suggested , so that the dish looks vibrant and appetizing. The reason this recipe is considered healthy is because it not only uses fresh ingredients but it is also prepared with the healthiest method of cooking, that is steaming.

I got my vegetables from Urban Fresh which is a door step delivery service for fresh vegetables. They sell all kind of vegetables, whether you need traditional ones or exotic, they have it all.

Recipe

  • Add all the vegetables in a bowl except iceberg lettuce leaves, so that the lettuce leaves doesn’t turn soggy. Also, we have to use them as cups to fill the vegetables later.
Fresh vegetables
Chop the vegetables in thick chunks
  • I love button mushrooms so I have added those. You may add any mushrooms of your choice or you may skip them completely. A variety of mushrooms go well in this recipe. You may use shitake, oyester or enoki mushrooms.

  • Season with oregano, chilli flakes and salt. Oregano can be replaced with rosemary and chives as well but I like mine with oregano.
 Vegetables with herbs
Oregano can be replaced with other herbs
  • Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over vegetables. Here, I am using Olitalia Extra Virgin Olive Oil which you can get from Amazon. Check-out the link to buy it in the beginning of blog post.

  • Place the lettuce leaves on a steamer plate/basket as placing lettuce underneath the vegetables not only prevents them from sticking but also adds flavour and texture to the recipe. Alternatively, cabbage leaves can be used in the place of iceberg lettuce, just in case they are not available. Although, lettuce is available at majority of supermarkets but finding them at local vegetable store is quite difficult sometimes.
  • Fill the vegetable mix in the lettuce leaves but keep in mind that you don’t over fill the cups otherwise they might not be able to hold the vegetables in place.
 Vegetables cups
These look delicious already
  • Cover and steam for 3-5 minutes. Serve Immediately after it is ready because this recipe tastes when hot.
Steamed Vegetables
Do not steam for more than 5 minutes
