How to make steamed asian style greens

This is great served with my Thai green chicken curry in place of rice. No steamer needed! I originally got the idea of steaming veg this way from Jamie Oliver

You can choose any greens but I started by placing some Tenderstem broccoli in a colander over a pan of simmering water. Make sure the bottom doesn't touch the water. This is your 'steamer'

Tightly wrap the colander in tin foil to trap in all of the steam and allow the simmering water beneath to steam the veg. Leave for about 3 mins

Add any greens which take less time to cook such as asparagus and put the tin foil back on to trap in the steam. Leave to cook for another 3 mins

Meanwhile mix up a dressing of 2 tsp soy sauce, 1 tsp sesame oil and a squeeze of lime juice. Add a pinch of chilli powder if you'd like a bit of a kick. Toss the cooked hot veg in the dressing

Serve immediately
