Lemongrass & Ginger Tea-Steamed Vegetables

October 05, 2014


We’ve all been told over and over again to eat our vegetables. However, even as adults many people still despise the flavor of these ‘healthy foods’. To add interest to them, steam your veggies with lemongrass-ginger tea!

Adapted from Wholefoodsmarket.com


  • 5 cups water
  • 1 (2-inch) piece fresh ginger root, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 5 lemongrass-ginger tea bags
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 head cauliflower, stemmed, cut into florets
  • 1 head broccoli, stemmed, cut into florets
  • 2 zucchini, ends trimmed, halved horizontally, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 yellow squash, ends trimmed, halved horizontally, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 cups Jerusalem artichokes (sunchokes), peeled, sliced and sprinkled with lemon juice



  1. Place water in the bottom of a steamer such as a bamboo steamer or a pot for cooking pasta. Add ginger, cover and bring to a boil.
  2. When water boils, add tea bags to water with a pinch of salt and pepper. Remove from heat, cover pot and let tea steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags, return to heat and bring water back to a boil. Meanwhile, prepare steaming basket: place cauliflower and broccoli florets on the bottom of the basket. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Add zucchini and yellow squash slices, followed by the Jerusalem artichokes.
  3. Place basket over water, making sure that the water does not touch the base of the basket. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes, until vegetables are crisp-tender. Serve immediately.

Andrea Bang

Allow me to introduce you to your new favourite show to binge watch on Netflix. Kim’s Convenience is a CBC comedy about a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. The sitcom is based on Ins Choi’s award-winning play. The moment I began watching the show I instantly regretted not doing so sooner. I actually started watching Kim’s Convenience because of an interaction on this Instagram post that featured Janet, played by the hilarious Andrea Bang, chugging a mug of tea. Andrea Bang was born and raised in Burnaby, B.C and like her character, she grew up around tea. In fact, tea plays a huge role in her acting career today. At the tea table Andrea opened up about her childhood tea moments, her favourite steeps, which character from Kim’s Convenience she would share a cup of tea with and more.

Two Types of Major College scholarships

Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).

The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
