Szechuan Steamed Vegetables

Jill Dalton
Steaming veggies is an easy and nutritious way to prepare vegetables that preserves the delicate flavor. Of course they taste even better when they are topped with this simple and delicious Szechuan sauce. You can serve this over rice or serve it with baked tofu chunks as a meal.

  1. Five stars! This was so good. I used asparagus with the broccoli and cauliflower because that’s what I had. Didn’t have any tofu so I stirred in some peanut butter for protein. Delicious! Thank you for another great recipe. Im sorry thé Kickstarter project fell through.

  2. Would love to be able to print the Szechuan Steamed Vegetable and sauce recipe. Print button blinked but that’s all. Sigh
