How to Steam Veggies (Broccoli, Carrots, Mixed Veg etc…)

Serves : Serving size = 1 cup, but you can always eat more veggies when they’re steamed!


  • Any Vegetable of choice, cut to bite sized pieces (or what your LBD meal plan calls for). This includes: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Asparagus, Carrots,  or other Veg of choice
  • ½ tsp. Sea Salt (Optional)


Directions for Steaming in a Pan: Bring a 1/4 inch of water to a boil in a large sauté pan. 

Add salt to the water if desired.  Add your vegetable of choice, cover, and then steam your veg until they are as tender as you want (about 3-5 minutes).

Directions for Steaming in a Steamer Basket:  Bring an inch of water to a boil in the bottom of a pot (where you will then place your steamer basket into). 

Place veggies into the steamer basket, set over the boiling water. 

Cover and steam until cooked to your liking (about 3-5 minutes).
