Ginger and Lemon Steamed Vegetables
  1. Lay the ginger evenly over the bottom of a steamer basket. Top with layers of the snap peas, zucchini, carrot, bell pepper and mushrooms. Sprinkle with the lemon zest.
  2. Place the salt, sesame seeds, and parsley in a resealable plastic bag and lightly smash the seasonings with the back of a knife until coarse or crush with a mortar and pestle; set aside.
  3. Fill the steamer base with about 2 inches of cold water and add the lemon juice. Bring to a simmer, place the steamer basket on top and cover. Steam the vegetables until fork-tender; about 4 minutes.
  4. Transfer the steamed vegetables to a serving platter, sprinkle with the seasoned salt and drizzle with olive oil.
