You can actually steam a lot of things. The two most common things that people steam are rice and vegetables. Steamed rice goes great with chicken and a lot of other meats and in stir fries. Steamed Vegetables are great when paired with butter or even things like cheese sauces.

You might not have seen recipes for steamed food because it is too simple to need a recipe. That doesn't mean that steamed food doesn't rock though. Steamers are great for veggies, they cook the food, yet allow them to retain their nutrients. Steamed asparagus is my favorite. The steamers that sit atop larger pots are the best!
