Do You Steam Your Veggies?

If so, what do you do with the left over liquid? Most likely, you probably just toss it out. Don't! Save it, it's full of nutritious goodness. Save that liquid and it can:

  1. Become the base of a vegetable stock
  2. Be used in place of water to cook grains
  3. Be used in place of water in smoothies

Or just drink it. I'm not a big fan of the taste as a beverage myself, but if you like it, go for it! If saving for later, store the liquid goodness in a glass container in the fridge and use as soon as possible since the vitamins in the liquid will degrade over time.
