Last night this came to me while I was eating broccoli I had steamed. This delicious creation had the water seasoned with a chicken ramen seasoning pack. It boils down to this (no pun intended), any place you are boiling or steaming and need salt, you can use a seasoning pack. I regularly use the for rice, pasta, beans, broccoli, cauliflower, and even grits (instructables.com/id/Kiss-My-Chicken-Grits/).
I've been doing this for years and hope you can get some use out of this info. Thanks
