    I think without a microwave you could leave the dressing seperate and just steam the veggies then poor the dressing on after? Of what about those bamboo steamer baskets? I've never used them but it seems like you could use them with the dressing/marinade on the veggies? just a thought... This recipe is delish though :D Just saw the cashew idea and think I might try that next time.

    I think you should always try to give a stovetop version of a microwavable recipe for those of us who don't use microwaves.

    Delicious! But just to warn, when microwaved it smells a little funny, I think it's the snap ipeas.
