Ask Lou: How to bring more flavour to steamed veggies


Today I’m answering a question submitted to my Ask Lou mailbox: How can I bring more flavour to my steamed veggies? I usually revert to roasted or pan-fried vegetables, but I’d love to mix up the way I cook and serve veggies to my young kids.

Steamed vegetables somehow survived the 90’s and have made their way back onto dinner tables around the world. But they’re so boring or they can be if you cook them too much or don’t add anything to them. Steamed veggies need the flavour and fun bought to them.


In this episode I chat about:

  • The number 1 thing that’ll ruin your steamed veggies
  • The benefits of buying vegetables in season
  • The simple flavour tip and most important question you need to be asking yourself when cooking (it’s the one that I get all my clients to ask themselves while cooking and taste testing)
  • My favourite ways to bring flavour to steam veggies
