Vegan MoFo – Day Ten

Vegan MoFo – Day Ten


I decided to go off theme today and make a very simple meal. Steamed veggies are one of my favorite things to eat and make for a quick lunch or side dish. I often keep fresh green beans, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower in the fridge for steaming or roasting. 

For lunch, I made a simple plate of steamed french style green beans and baby carrots.

I used the electric pressure cooker (again) for this recipe. I wasn’t lying when I said I used it almost every single day. You can just as easily steam the veggies on the stovetop. 

What I used:
8oz of fresh green beans
1 cup of baby carrots, slice in half lengthwise
Salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste

1. Prepare the pressure cooker by adding 1/2 cup of water into it and place a steamer insert over the water. 

2. Rinse the green beans and carrots. Cut the carrots in half lengthwise.

3. Place the green beans onto steamer insert in the pressure cooker and then put the carrots on top of the green beans. 

4. Close the lids and set the pressure to low for 6 minutes. Released the pressure using the quick release function once the cooking time has finished. Once the pressure is released, remove the lid, being careful to point the lid away from you, to ensure the steam does not burn you. 

5. Sprinkle the steamed veggies with a little salt and fresh ground black pepper.
