Vegetable Steaming Guide

Vegetable Steaming Guide

Steaming veggies have been made easier with the use of your VaromaⓇ. VaromaⓇ is a ThermomixⓇ term that was derived from vapour and aroma.

The VaromaⓇ temperature tells the temperature option on your Thermie as well as your VaromaⓇ dish.

You may ask, ‘What is the VaromaⓇ dish?’

The VaromaⓇ is the large dish that you attach on your ThermomixⓇ that you can use for steaming meat, fish or veggies.

This is a great add-on to your ThermomixⓇ and a superb tool to have. Aside from the usual features that your ThermomixⓇ provides, it lets me steam and cook other dishes simultaneously.

For me. I use it to cook more food for my family. Sometimes, I use it to double the veggies in a meal or to prepare for other ingredients for a different dish.


Steamed vs. Boiled

If you’re wondering what is the difference between boiled and steamed veggies, here it is: If you boil your vegetables, the nutrients dissolve in the cooking water and at some point, affects the taste of the food.

On the other hand, steaming preserves the nutrients and the taste of some delicate veggies since it uses minimal energy in cooking.


Steaming Vegetables

Steaming veggies is a good choice when you’re on a tight schedule. With the help of your Thermomix VaromaⓇ, you can now prepare great meals in a short period of time.

I love preparing steamed veggies because they’re a great side dish for everyone.

The key is to have a variety of vegetables to steam every day.

What’s best is, they’re extremely quick and simple to make!

Steam carrots, zucchinis, potatoes and other vegetables that you like in 500g of water, salt and oil (as needed).


How To Steam Your Vegetables

  • Peel the veggies that need peeling or wash those veggies that don’t need to be peeled.
  • Determine the number of veggies that you’ll be steaming. You can add vegetables as long as they can fit the basket.
  • Cut the veggies into bite-sized chunks or slice them into strips
  • Add water to your ThermomixⓇ
  • Place veggies that need more cooking in the basket.
  • For delicate vegetables, you can put them in the VaromaⓇ base.
  • Set your ThermomixⓇ to 25℃ at Varoma Speed 1.

Check the texture of your vegetables every 15-20 minutes. If you wish to make it a bit softer, you may need to add more water in the bowl.

You can definitely have steamed veggies every day. Just have a variety of vegetables daily and season it with salt and lots of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Make your meals more enjoyable with classy and healthy steamed vegetables.
