Begin by washing and preparing the vegetables, ensuring they are peeled, trimmed, and cut into bite-sized pieces.
Take a large pot and fill it with water, approximately 2 inches deep. Place it over medium heat and bring it to a boil.
Set up a steamer basket or metal colander inside the pot, making sure it doesn’t touch the water.
Add the prepared vegetables to the steamer basket, ensuring they are evenly distributed.
Season the vegetables with salt and pepper to your liking.
Cover the pot with a lid and steam the vegetables for about 8-10 minutes until they reach a tender texture, while retaining some crispness. Avoid overcooking them.
Once the vegetables are steamed to perfection, transfer them to a serving dish.
Enhance the flavour and moisture by drizzling a small amount of olive oil over the steamed vegetables.
Gently toss the vegetables to ensure they are evenly coated with the olive oil.
Serve the steamed vegetables either as a delightful side dish or a healthy complement to your main course.
