    Hi all,

    My Mum has gone away for the weekend and am attempting to cook a roast dinner for myself, my Dad and my brother, all is going well apart from I've only used the steamer once before and don't want to overdo the vegetables!

    It's a tefal electric steamer with 3 tiers, I'm trying to cook some shredded cabbage, sliced runner beans and some carrots...

    Anyone have any ideas which veg need to be on the 'top' or bottom?!?

    Many thanks in anticipation!x

    Id put carrots at the bottom, runner beans middle and cabbage at the top.
