Making Steamed Veggies More Exciting

How to make plain, steamed vegetables more exciting

These hints can be applied to all steamed vegetables:
 After cooking, add one tablespoon cold pressed olive oil, flaxseed oil or coconut oil to every 2 cups of greens.
 Add 2 bay leaves or 1 teaspoon cumin seeds to the cooking water.
 Sprinkle cooked greens with pumpkin, sesame, flax or sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts or dried shredded coconut.
 Sprinkle greens with fresh herbs: mint, dill, basil, parsley, cilantro, scallion.
 Use a splash of tamari soy sauce or umeboshi vinegar to add extra flavor to cooked veggies.
 Squeeze fresh lemon or lime juice over steamed vegetables.
 My personal favorite: Add 1 tablespoon cold-pressed coconut oil, 1-2 cloves minced or pressed garlic, 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger and 1-2 teaspoons raw apple cider vinegar. Especially tasty on greens.
 For kids (or the kid inside): drizzle with a little raw honey or grade B maple syrup
 For a quick, ready made option, try drizzling vegetables with Annie’s organic Goddess Dressing (not Green Goddess).
