We're always in a hurry. Especially when we're hungry. There was once a time when the most convenient food was the salve for our hunger, even if it meant compromising on stale tasting, high-sodium, fattening foods you could prepare in a minute. But it doesn't have to be that way. You can eat wonderfully healthy vegetables, even seafood steamed in a microwave in less time than it would take to heat up a lousy frozen dinner.
About a year ago, we discovered the Lekue silicone microwave steamer (available at Sur La Table and Amazon). We can't recommend it enough.
