David Chang makes the tastiest steamed vegetables with this trick

Must Try

If David Chang (the famous chef you know from his restaurant group Momofuku and TV series like Ugly Delicious on Netflix) says that he eats a lot of steamed vegetables at home, then they must be very tasty steamed vegetables. And Chang has a cool trick for that.

Cooking time5 minutes


For a generous portion:

  • 500 grams of broccoli or vegetable of your choice
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of a salt mixture of your choice (see preparation)
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

Steamed vegetables

David Chang has not only published a book that will soon be published in the Netherlands – it’s called Eat a Peach (keep an eye on Culy!) – he also recently became a father of a son. We don’t know how he managed it, but his son loves broccoli. And so a lot of green stumps go through in the Chang house.

“We just steam it and then we add seasoned salt,” Chang says. His restaurant group recently released a collection of Momofuku Seasoned Salt: ready-made mixtures of salt and spices. When you mix it with a little melted butter and pour it over steamed vegetables like broccoli, asparagus or cabbage, your veggies become real flavor bombs.

The salt mixtures from Momofuku are of course not available for normal Dutch mortals, but you can easily make your own salt mixtures. Especially if you have a small spice grinder or coffee bean grinder. This allows you to grind ingredients nicely before adding them to salt.

Make your own salt mixtures

For example, for a savory version, mix some salt with onion powder, garlic powder, ground dried porcini and ground kombu (dried seaweed, available at the grocery store). Extra tip: a pinch of nutritional yeast flakes . Optionally, add some ground Sichuan pepper for a tingling effect on your tongue. If you like it spicy, make a mixture of salt with paprika powder, chili powder, nutritional yeast, Sichuan pepper, ground porcini and ground kombu.

Or celebrate your own party and come up with your own salt mixture. We also like salt mixed with ground porcini, for example. Or seaweed salt: salt with some finely ground nori sheets.

The lazy cook can even buy tasty salt mixtures, for example in delicatessens or just in the supermarket.

This is how you make steamed vegetables à la David Chang

Steam (or boil or microwave) vegetables until desired doneness. For broccoli, Chang takes 3 to 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a pan on the stove or in the microwave and add the salt mixture. Add a little lemon juice and/or soy sauce if needed.

Drain the vegetables and drizzle the butter mixture over them. Sprinkle a little more of the salt mixture on top just before serving.
