This recipe makes great use of NEFF’s steam function – proof that steaming can be versatile as well as healthy!  As well as sealing in all the vitamin and mineral content of fresh food, steaming also preserves natural flavours, so less salt is required. Wonderfully easy to use and clean, they’re versatile and highly energy efficient too, able to cook a whole range of fresh meals at low temperatures.
