Layering the vegetables in this order in the steamer basket helps them to cook evenly.

Ingredients

fresh spinach

10 oz, cleaned

uncooked zucchini

2 medium, sliced crosswise

sweet red pepper(s)

2 medium, cut into strips

uncooked shrimp

1 pound(s), large, peeled and deveined

basil

2 Tbsp, minced

fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp

table salt

¼ tsp

black pepper

tsp

canned white beans

15 oz, rinsed and drained

Instructions

  1. Place spinach, zucchini, bell peppers and shrimp, in that order, in a steamer basket. Set in a saucepan over 1 inch (2.5 cm) of boiling water. Cover and steam until vegetables are tender-crisp and shrimp are cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a blender, combine and purée basil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine basil dressing with beans and shrimp.
  4. To serve, divide vegetables among 4 plates. Top with shrimp and beans.

Notes

By keeping the shrimp on top, it's easy to pick them out and add them to the dressing with the beans.
