Steamed recipe collection

Cooking with steam is beneficial in many ways. It preserves the water content and nutrition of the ingredients, and brings out the umami in the best way, not to mention avoiding using oil.
More than anything, the steam that billows forth when you open the lid adds to the presentation.
We often use bamboo steamers in Japan, but you can also find recipes that use a pot, frying pan, or microwave too.
Why not add an extra steamed dish to your dinner table today?
