Freshly steamed vegetables are now available at the Fresh Food Company’s Pasta Station!
Studies have shown that steaming cooking method that can retain high level of nutrient content in many vegetables. Because steaming is a rapid method of cooking and requires minimal water exposure, very few nutrients are lost when vegetables are steamed.
