Here's a meal that cooks in six minutes, has a tasty and healthy array of food, and leaves no dirty dishes. The author explains how to cook with a vapor bath and offers three dipping sauce recipes for some spicy tang to highlight individual vegetable and fish flavors. She explains how to select bamboo steamers, or metal if you prefer, and what size and features work best. There's an art to choosing and preparing the food, and she details what works best for each season.
