Healthy Cooking Tips:
It helps to toss the steamer basket up and down with the cooked vegetables to drain out excess water. This will keep the flavor from being diluted. Make sure you don't overcook the zucchini, as it also will dilute the flavor if overcooked. It will start to look a little translucent when it overcooks.
