Steaming preserves nutrients: So after raw consumption, steaming is a good way to keep the color of your veg and not kill all the nutrients.

I like using rooibos tea instead of water in my recipes to make sure I don't dilute any of the flavours, it has a suttle taste so it doesnt interfere, and it is full of anti-oxidants. If you don't have rooibos tea where you live use any herbal teas that is similar or just use water .
