Steam Mates Bag and Packaging

Let's go!

Great tasting vegetables are just minutes away with the SteamMates seasoning and steaming kit. To prepare, simply add your own fresh (or frozen!) vegetables and one tablespoon of oil such as olive, canola, vegetable or your favorite cooking oil.

Cutting your vegetables into 1 to 2 inch pieces

CHOP

Each SteamMates kit seasons about 3 cups (12 ounces) of vegetables, which is what most bags of pre-washed veggies contain. Or use your own fresh veggies – just cut them into one to two inch sized pieces.

Add seasoning to your Steam Mates bag

ADD SEASONING

To prepare, open the bag and add the included packet of chef-inspired seasoning. SteamMates comes in four delicious flavors; Butter and Herb, Lemon Pepper, Italian Herb and Teriyaki, so you can easily find a flavor the whole family will enjoy.

Add your vegetables to your Steam Mate bag

ADD VEGGIES

Next, add the vegetables to the steaming bag. This special bag retains steam to gently and evenly cook your vegetables. 

Steam Mates adding oil to the bag

ADD OIL

Add one tablespoon of your favorite cooking oil and fold over the top of the bag twice, creasing the bag with your fingers to keep it closed. The bag is made from a food grade paper that is moisture and oil resistant, free from plastic, BPA or flourochemicals.

Shake the contents of the bag

shake

Shake the bag to distribute the seasoning over the vegetables, and place on a microwave safe plate. The steaming bag imparts no off flavors to the food. The only flavor you’ll taste is our delicious seasoning blend and your fresh veggies!  

Heat your bag for 3 minutes

heat

Cook on your microwave’s “high” setting for about 3-5 minutes, depending on the vegetable you are preparing. Because microwaves vary, your actual cooking time may be +/-30 seconds – detailed cooking times for vegetables types are printed on the steaming bag.

Empty your finished bag

serve

After cooking is complete, allow the bag to stand in the microwave for 30 seconds, then carefully open the bag and pour onto a bowl or plate. Because hot steam will be present, use caution and wear an oven mitt or use a potholder to prevent burning yourself.

ENJOY

In just minutes you can add a delicious vegetable side dish to any meal.
