Broccoli and Carrots – Steamed

Broccoli and Carrots – Steamed
by James Belardo

A quick, easy, and healthy way of cooking vegetables are to steam them.


  • 1 head broccoli
  • 1-2 carrots. sliced
  • Lemon, juice (freshly squeezed)
  • Olive Oil
  • Unsalted butter
  • Salt and Pepper – to taste


1. Wash and cut the broccoli and carrots as desired, place in steaming basket.

2. Bring water to boil and steam the broccoli and carrots  (covered) for about  5-minutes or until desired tenderness is reached (we like ours a bit crunchy).*

3. Toss the broccoli and carrots into a bowl, add a splash of lemon juice, a splash of your good olive oil, a dab of unsalted butter and finally, the salt and pepper (to taste).

Hint: You can save the water that was used for steaming and use it for soups or other dishes that need water while cooking.
