Let’s “Steam -It” with Tupperware

IMG_9045The diet consciousness is leading us to opt more of raw and steamed food rather than the fried. Steamed food is like a food with the goodness intact and cooked with the help of hot water steam. It is known to be one of the healthiest methods of cooking food as it helps in retaining the nutrients, vitamins and fatty acids together with preserving the color, flavour and texture of the food product.

A common myth today is that steaming food leads in a bland output. But if cooked with creativity, it can give you the utmost delicious food. Tupperware Steam- It comes with a wonderful cookbook with the delightful  recipes to cook.
