In the transition from winter to spring, or summer to fall, sometimes we want a meal that is warm but not too warm, and perhaps filling but not too filling as well. In any case, making extra-healthy meals that are warm or cool, and filling or less so, is always easy when we eat the HumanaNatura way and follow HumanaNatura’s OurPlate healthy eating guidelines. Today’s steamed veggies salad meal is a delicious example, and study in making meals that are just right, and neither too big, small, hot, and cool.
Our sample HumanaNatura meal begins with a some sliced golden potato, cut yellow onion, crushed and chopped garlic, and cayenne pepper, all of which are steamed at medium-high heat for about three minutes (see our Cooking With Steam Overview if you are new to food steaming). As these foods cook, half of a zucchini and carrot are each cut into noodles, either with a knife or using a veggetti noodle slicer. The noodles are then placed atop the steaming root veggies and everything is steamed for an additional three minutes.
As the steamed portion of the meal finishes cooking, a handful of fresh arugula or another raw green is placed on the side of a plate, along with bit-sized pieces of cucumber and tomato, and this part of the meal is dressed with a bit of white balsamic vinegar and olive oil. When the steamed veggies are done, they are plated alongside the raw foods, and dressed with a bit of red chilli sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. The entire meal is then garnished with black pepper and parsley, and a bit of ground ginger and sesame seeds if you would like, and served promptly. Not too hot or cool, or too filling or light – just quick, easy, delicious, and super-healthy!
