Default Steam Cooking - Question from Novice Cook

I recently and finally opened up my new steam cooker the other day. I'm a novice cooker (I'm single and rarely cook for myself...the microwave is my friend).

I cooked some broccoli the other day and actually enjoyed it! I'd like to know what other vegetables and foods are good and healthy to steam cook. Like I said...I'm truly a novice cook.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! I've Googled the terms "Steam cooking", but only came up with the answer of "all vegetables and some fish" when using the search terms "what can I steam cook".

I just got my first steamer also. Can anyone give us ideas of cook times? Favorite ways of seasoning vegetables? Fish?

You really can steam most veggies! I usually steam broccoli, cauliflower, and spinach/kale/other leafy veggies.

I like to season with 1) Lemon-Pepper (McCormicks), 2) Old Bay, or 2) Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Yum!
