I steam a lot of veggies on Sundays and take a large container to work for the whole week. I have no problem re-heating then in the microwave (however a lot of people say nuking things is bad).

I used to buy fresh veggies, but found that i would never have the time to clean, cut then cook them so now I just buy frozen broccoli and califlower and steam them right out of the bag.

Watch out for those nuke-in-bag products. Plastic releases carcinogens when microwaved.

I'm a big fan of soy sauce (never gets old for me).

Wow I really still enjoy veggies steamed plain, cooked with the meat or fish, or in a pan with olive oil spray (from TJs) and a bot of salt and garlic powder. SOme ppl here are just so creative. Awesome!

When I lived near this place, I would eat here or get take out about 5 days a week. They sell a cook book with great recipes. I always liked the brown rice gravy they sell over steamed veggies. The cook book might be worth checking out if you would like to try some different ideas.

Wow, I just steamed my first batch of vegetables tonight. I used garlic salt in the water. Afterwards I added a little more directly to the veggies and some "Cajun Seasoning" to the mix.

It was delicious! I probably ate more green vegetables tonight than I have in the past 6 weeks. Thanks a ton to all who contributed to this thread.

I am personally not a big fan of BBQ sauce or soy sauce because of high glycemic/high sodium. A dab of olive oil (a couple blocks of fat) or pepper work wonders.
