Metodi di cottura: la cottura a vapore

Posted on October 31, 2012 at 8:48 PM
Nella cottura a vapore il liquido di cottura (acqua tal quale o arricchita) portato a ebollizione evapora e raggiunge sotto forma appunto di vapore gli alimenti posizionati sopra di esso: non c'è dunque contatto diretto tra alimento e liquido di cottura.
La cottura al vapore permette di limitare la perdita dei nutrienti, rispetto alla lessatura ad esempio limita molto la perdita delle vitamine idrosolubili (che essendo appunto solubili in acqua vengono in gran parte disperse nell'acqua di cottura durante la lessatura) e riduce anche la perdita di sali minerali.
La cottura a vapore inoltre non richiede l'aggiunta di grassi e data la sua capacità di rispettare la consistenza, i colori e il sapore degli alimenti, aiuta anche a limitare la quantità di condimenti aggiunti. Volendo non solo preservare ma anche arricchire il sapore dei cibi è possibile aggiungere al liquido di cottura spezie o erbe aromatiche, oltre che aglio, cipolla, limone, arancia o vino. 
La cottura a vapore risulta particolarmente adatta per la cottura di ortaggi, carne, pesce e frutta; i risultati sono migliori se gli alimenti vengono precedentemente tagliati a pezzi di piccole dimensioni e approssimativamente della stessa misura.
Per tale tipo di cottura è possibile utilizzare i tradizionali cestelli di bambù o moderni cestelli in acciaio (posizionati sopra il liquido utilizzando una normale pentola o una pentola a pressione); in alternativa è possibile utilizzare il forno a vapore o apparecchi specifici per la cottura a vapore.
Per prevenire la formazione di condensa i cibi più delicati possono essere coperti con della pellicola per forno a microonde.

Condimento per pesce a vapore

Involtini di tacchino alla senape
Spalmare 1 C di senape su 4 fettine di tacchino, arrotolarle e fissarle con uno stuzzicadenti; cuocere a vapore per 25-30'.
Accompagnare con una salsa preparata con 1 C di senape e 4 C di yogurt al naturale

Terrina di verdure
Cuocere a vapore 600 g di verdure e ridurle in crema con un robot da cucina.
Mescolarle con 6 albumi d'uovo montati a neve ferma, 150 g di ricotta magra, sale, pepe e una grattata di noce moscata o maggiorana.
Distribuire il composto ottenuto in ciotoline individuali e cuocere a vapore per 40'

Hi! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!

I think everything composed was actually very logical.
But, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier post title?
I am not saying your content is not good., but suppose you added a
post title to possibly grab a person's attention?
I mean Metodi di cottura: la cottura a vapore is a little plain. You could glance at Yahoo's
front page and note how they write post headlines to grab viewers interested.
You might add a related video or a related picture or two
to get people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts
a little livelier.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog
and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive.

Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however ,
I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging
links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you're interested feel free to shoot me an email.
I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
off topic but I had to tell someone!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

Appreciate it!

I have been browsing online more than three
hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful
than ever before.

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!
