Make-Shift Vegetable Steamers

For a make-do steamer, use an electric frying pan with an inch of water in it. Place the food on a heatproof plate & balance it on some kind of platform - a canning jar ring, perhaps, or a empty tuna can with both ends removed.. Then cover, leaving a small air vent so that condensed steam doesn't drip onto the food.

Or make a steamer from 2 pieces of foil and set it over an inch or 2 of water in a saucepan. Jab small holes in the foil with a sharp pencil & tightly crimp the edges over the rim of the pan. Place the food inside, cover, & steam.
