More steam bag recipes:

Steamed fruit:
3 cups of sliced fruit (stone fruits, apples, and pears work best)
2 Tbs. apple juice
2 Tbs. brown sugar or natural honey (or both)
Dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

Mix together the apple juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon until smooth. Combine all ingredients in a steam bag and microwave for 3-4 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes. Shake bag slightly to distribute ingredients. Serve with ice cream, frozen yogurt, whipped cream, or enjoy by itself! Also makes a great pancake topper!

Chicken Italiano:
1 chicken breast, raw, chopped into bite sized pieces
14 oz. can diced tomatoes
½ cup chopped artichoke hearts
¼ cup chopped mushrooms
½ cup chopped zucchini or eggplant
6 oz. dry rotini pasta (whole wheat)
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 Tbs. minced garlic
1 Tsp. onion powder
2 Tbs. diced sun-dried tomatoes

Combine all the ingredients in a steam bag and microwave for approx. five minutes or until pasta is soft (feel through the bag- do not open the bag). Serve with garlic bread and a salad. Serves two.
