Steamed Dream & Tip #6 for Meal Planning

I guess this meal in less than 30 minutes would qualify as a nap instead of a dream.  Steamed fish and vegetables, instant rice and a few sauteed vegetables is a colorful, healthy meal inspired by a recipe in Food Network Magazine. Here's how a put ours together:

Steamed Flounder and Vegetables

(Serves 2)

Place a rack in a large pan with 2 inches of water.  On top the rack, place a steamer basket.  Spray with Pam.  Layer in basket:
1/4 cup sliced onion
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
2 flounder fillets
Steam for 10 minutes.

Cook rice:
1/2 cup instant brown rice
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon sesame oil

 In a small saucepan, saute peppers and garlic in oil:
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
2 mini peppers, cut in rings
Add reduced sodium soy sauce:
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce

To steamer basket with fish and vegetables add:
2/3 cup fresh broccoli flowers
Steam 8 more minutes.
1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves
Turn off heat and cover.

Arrange plates with:
Fish and vegetables
Sauteed pepper,garlic, soy sauce mix.
Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper.

Tip #6:  Include low fat dairy with meals.
 Happy Friday!

  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
