Any time I steam veggies, I nuke them in the microwave in a Pyrex bowl with a lid. Sometimes I’ll add a splash of water as well as a little bit of salt and pepper, but usually I just pop the veggies in it and cook. It’s seriously the easiest way to steam veggie ever. FYI: I nuked the asparagus for this recipe for 5 minutes and it came out perfectly.
